Social Life Nights to Put on Your Calendar NOW!

Hey First Year Youth Ministers!
There are lots of ways to create an amazing calendar. You may be wondering, which series? Which Social Life Nights? Which Issue Life Nights? Any Life Nights that pertain to the liturgical season? These are all great questions you should be asking as you plan your calendar this summer.

Here’s a recommendation for your Social Life Nights. ILLUMINATE, a Kick-Off Life Night to launch your program with dynamism. LAS POSADAS, a Christmas Social that is centered on the reason for the season. RUNNING BLIND, another high energy Kick-Off Life Night, but on a budget. BEHOLD, a prayerful way to conclude the year.

Fall Kick-Off

Christmas Social
LAS POSADAS — A Christmas Social Life Night

Spring Kick Off
RUNNING BLIND — A Low Budget Social Life Night

End of Year
BEHOLD — An XLT on Eucharistic Adoration

Lily Hannan

When people ask where I am from, I respond, "THE WHOLE WORLD!" As a kid we moved around and my Dad raised me knowing that "the world is my backyard." I have now put down roots in Phoenix and serve as the Coordinator of Diocesan Collaborations and Curriculum Support at Life Teen, but I still enjoy traveling for business and leisure across the globe. I am delighted to combine my passion for travel, mission, and people with my youth ministry expertise to help parishes and diocese lead teens closer to Christ. When not at work you can find me lifting weight at Crossfit, up a mountain, or under the sea with my friends and family. If you have any curriculum related questions, you can contact Lily at
