EDGE

EDGE is an international Catholic middle school youth ministry program created for youth in grades six, seven, and eight. EDGE is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adolescents. EDGE describes how, in many respects, middle school kids are on the edge because so much is going on in their lives physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially. It can be a very stressful and difficult time for them and their parents. As a Catholic Community, we give our middle school youth an opportunity to learn about Jesus, The Word, The Eucharist, and The Church in a fun and interactive manner with their peers and CORE team leaders every Monday night from 7-8:30. All 6/7/8 graders are welcome from any parish or school and are encouraged to bring their friends.
