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 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.
