Damian Stayne started Night of Light around 15 years ago.
He told Premier 31st October should really be about the eve All Saints’ Day.
He said: “All Saints Feast is the celebration of the success of the work of the cross.
“The devil seems to have hidden that message by disguising Halloween into something about darkness and death and witches.
“It’s become a celebration of darkness and things that are very unhealthy.”
Night of Light has received a stamp of approval by the Vatican and celebrations have taken place in small chapels and cathedrals in parish churches, monasteries, schools and homes in several countries.
Stayne said: “The kids who come to our Night of Light parties have got to have a better time than all their friends who are doing trick or treating.
“We invite them to come and dress up as Saints their heroes of faith, and we do some kind of teaching, a little tiny short thing, that gives them an aspiration for living in God.”
To set itself apart from traditional Halloween celebrations, the event is decorated with pumpkins that have happy faces carved into them.
Night of Light also encourages people to place a light in their window along with a picture of Jesus as a sign to passers-by that it’s a Christian household and Christ is “their light”.
Listen to Damian Stayne speaking with Premier’s Tola Mbakwe here:
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
