Middle School EDGE THEME: FIAT
Mary’s ‘Yes’ to the most difficult, challenging, beautiful and faithful life as the mother of God teaches us how to be open to God’s call for our lives. She was the most powerful witness of faithfulness to the Father and to the Son. Our yes to God’s call requires prayers, Mary’s intercessions on our behalf as well as the Holy Spirit. We are called to be witnesses; missionaries, sharers of the love of Christ with others. If Jesus isn’t in our hearts, we can’t be witnesses. This year we are going to learn what it takes to say YES everyday faithfully and how to be a missionary to everyone we encounter.
SCRIPTURE: “And you will receive the power when the holy spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses…” -Acts 1:8
During the Wed. Edge Kickoff Session, we introduced the High School Leadership Team (Freedom Team) to the middle school students through games, skits and testimonies.
The goal of the night was to build a community of trust, introduce the theme and topic for the year.
EDGE Schedule: Wednesdays 6:15-7:30 pm at St Paul Apostle
October 2,9, 16, 23, 30
High School Life Night THEME: Belong
As we search for ways to escape these feelings of isolation, there comes a small, quiet whisper that pierces through to the depths of our heart: “You are never alone, because you are Mine.”
SCRIPTURE: “See what love the Father has bestowed on us, that we may be called children of God.” -1 John 3:1
Sunday’s Kickoff started off with coffee (it was international coffee day), hot cocoa and cookies. We participated in community building activities and ended the evening with an activity which the teens anonymously shared important attributes they would like people to know about them and of course prayer.
Life Night Schedule: Sundays 7:30-9pm at IHM School/DeMazenod Entrance
