Healthy, Happy, Holy An Edge Issue Night on Safe Environment About this Edge Night This night will start off with a huge game of telephone to demonstrate how easily messages can be misinterpreted and retold when it passes through so many people. Then the middle school youth will have an opportunity to sit down as small groups and discuss and brainstorm the qualities of a good friend. There will then be a teaching about the qualities of good friendships and relationships and what to do when those qualities are not present or when boundaries are violated in their different relationships. During the Break, the youth will discuss in small groups possible scenarios of different relationships, what they would do, and what should be done in each situation. The night will end with a prayer to St. Dominic Savio. Goal of This Night The goal of this night is for the middle school youth to come to a greater understanding of their dignity, worth, and their call to live healthy, happy, and holy lives. This Edge Night is intended to be a part of the Catholic Church’s initiative for continuous training and awareness in Safe Environment. This night will give the youth the tools to recognize what constitutes a good, holy friendship and relationship and what does not. It will provide them with guidance and tools so that they can take action if they find themselves or a friend in situations of abuse, bullying, or any other harmful relationships. The youth will understand that they were created with worth and deserve respect from all people and are called to respect others because all people are children of God and created in his image and likeness (Genesis 1:26).
