The Ascent An Edge Night on the Mass About This Night This Edge Night beings with a Gather game where the youth will be challenged to create their own mountain and present it to the rest of the group with an explanation of the different elements of their mountain. The Proclaim walks the youth through what happens during the first half of the Mass, in particular the Liturgy of the Word. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to discuss what they have learned and then to write down their own offerings to God. During the Send, the youth will have an opportunity to learn more about music at Mass and then to put their own offerings of self into a basket as they sing praise and worships songs. The Edge Night ends with a final song and a prayer of thanksgiving. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to break open the first half of the Mass with an emphasis on the Liturgy of the Word and how it prepares our hearts to be nourished by the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Catechism # 1348 - 1350 Scripture Luke 24:13 -31 Key Concepts • When we gather for Mass we are brought together as a community and our hearts are prepared to enter into the great mystery of the liturgy. (CCC 1348) • The Liturgy of the Word breaks open the Word of God and, through attentive listening and prayer, we are able to hear the voice of God and learn more about Him and what He calls us to do in our Christian life. (CCC 1349) • During the Mass we also have the opportunity to pray for those in need, to give of our goods for those in need, and to bring our offerings along with the bread and wine to the priest to prepare for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
