Invited A Life Night on the Mystical Body of Christ About this Night The Gather begins with an invitation for the teens to get to know one another and then has several teens act out invitations to different events in an increasingly silly way. The Proclaim explains Baptism as the invitation to be part of the Body of Christ and the Eucharist as our way to continue to accept that invitation. The Break is an individual reflection that allows the teens to think about invitations of faith they have received and extended. The Send is a time for the teens to pray with one another and offer gratitude for the invitations God has extended to them. Goal of This Night The goal of Invited is to help the teens grasp the reality of the Mystical Body of Christ in a way that sparks a desire to belong in the Church. It explains the role and importance of Baptism and the Eucharist in the Body of Christ.
