The EDGE is a Catholic Middle School Youth Ministry experience for early adolescents in grades 6th, 7th, & 8th utilizing the Edge program from Life Teen, Inc.  The EDGE is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adolescents.  Kids are always welcomed and encouraged to bring their friends to EDGE.



In many respects, middle school adolescents are on the "edge" because so much is going on in his or her life.  It can be a very stressful and difficult time for young people and their parents.  Within the context of faith, middle school youth are moving from a child-like spirituality to an independent ownership of their Catholic faith and identity.  Through the EDGE we hope they will reach this pinnacle.



Middle School youth have many options and choices before them.  The EDGE provides an unparalleled moment in their life for guidance and reassurance in Jesus' love for them.  Through this ministry, we give our middle school youth the Edge they need in life: Jesus, The Word, The Sacraments, the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and a Catholic community where they can experience true peace, hope, joy, and the love of God!
