The Apex An Edge Night on the Mass About This Night This Edge Night begins with a Gather trivia game where the youth will learn more about Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. During the Proclaim, the youth will learn more about the Eucharist as the summit of our faith. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to create a banner that represents what it means to them to “go to the heights” of holiness as well as a chance to go to Eucharistic Adoration. The Edge Night ends with the parish priest offering a final blessing and commissioning for each youth so that they can be sent forth to continue to climb to the heights of holiness. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is for the youth to come to a greater understanding of the Mass, in particular the Liturgy of the Eucharist. They will come to understand the faith as a progression towards the Eucharist and to see their encounter with God as an essential part in their mission to bring God out into the world and do His will. Catechism # 1352 - 1361 # 1364 - 1380 Scripture Exodus 24:12 -18 1 Kings 19:11 -13 Luke 9:28 -36 Key Concepts • The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. • We approach the summit, the apex of our faith, when the priest comes to the altar and begins the Eucharistic Prayer. • The very word “Mass” comes from the word “missio” which means “to be sent forth.” We receive Jesus in order to be strengthened to return back to the world and share the light of Christ with all those we encounter, accomplishing His will in our lives.
