Christ is risen
Happy and blessed Easter

We wish you, your families and all Nightfever teams a happy and blessed Easter!

For Christians, Easter is the most important feast of the year and it begins in the night from Saturday to Sunday. The Easter season lasts exactly 50 days and ends with Pentecost.

At Easter, the Church celebrates the resurrection of Christ, who conquered death. On Good Friday, Jesus was condemned and nailed on the cross on the hill of Golgotha outside Jerusalem. Jesus died there and he was laid in a rocky grave.

40 days to prepare for Easter
Ideas for Lent

The fasting time is a forty days preparation time for Easter. It is given to us as a time to concentrate on Jesus Christ in the Word, the Sacrament and our fellow human beings.

Catholics all over the world are preparing themselves for Easter during this time by fasting, praying, and sharing. Many are giving up special things that they love or they sacrifice them in their everyday life through prayer, time or money for people who need their help.

You want to get to know young people who live their religious faith?
You want to know more about the faith and grow in the faith? Then you are exactly right in the Nightfever Academy.

Since 2011 there is the Nightfever Academy as a continuative option of the Nightfever Initiative. Besides individual daytime-events we once a year offer Academy-days, usually taking place from Wednesday to Saturday. Previously, study days to the Holy Pope John Paul II., to his Theology of the Body, but also to Romano Guardini and to the Eucharist as food of immortality were already held.

In addition to lectures, discussions, common prayer, worship and community there is always a lot of fun, as well. To get a better impression, you can watch the video of the Nightfever Academy 2015.

The book on Nightfever
Monkey Business

Since its origin from the World Youth Day 2005 the Nightfever Initiative has become one of the future-promising breakups in the Catholic Church and is considered a successful model of new-evangelization.

Which theological and philosophical insights follows the Nightfever Initiative? On which intellectual and spiritual fundaments is it based? What is its spiritual significance for the presence?
The book on Nightfever wants to provide information about the theological and philosophical foundations of Nightfever.
