Superfood An Edge Night on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus Christ About this Edge Night The Edge Night begins with a Gather activity where small groups recreate famous religious artwork with sidewalk chalk. The Proclaim discusses the significance of Christ giving us His body and blood, both on the cross and in the Eucharist. During the Break, the youth use sidewalk chalk to write prayers of thanksgiving. The Send concludes the Edge Night with a Eucharistic procession over the sidewalk chalk decorations the youth made. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to prepare the youth for and explain the Church’s celebration of the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. This Edge Night will provide the youth with an understanding of the feast and personal applications to their faith.

This week the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus Christ —also known as Corpus Christi. This feast day was instituted because of a Eucharistic miracle. As “Eucharist” means “thanksgiving,” Corpus Christi is a great opportunity to recommit to giving thanks to God. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Edge Night!
