Edge Middle School Youth Ministry (Grades 6-8)

EDGE is our Catholic Middle School youth ministry program. It provides a safe, fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.

EDGE Registration

EDGE registration for 2022-23 will open in August. If you would like your youth to participate in Summer Youth Group, contact Katherine Buckley at kbuckley@sfdaparish.org.

Summer Youth Group

All through June and July we will have Summer Youth Group on Wednesdays 6:30-8:00pm in the St. John Bosco room. We will have hangout time, fun games, delicious snacks, Bible Studies, and special events. Come join us and invite your friends!

Why is Edge Important?

We all remember that middle school was awkward and difficult. That hasn’t changed. However, societal shifts have made the middle school years more difficult than ever. Today, middle school youth are having experiences that were common only with high school students just 15 years ago. Threats of violence, availability of drugs and alcohol, and pervasiveness of sex and pornography are the new norm. Not only are they faced with these tough realities but they are also in the process of moving from being family-centered to friend-centered.

Peers gain greater influence and parental authority is called into question. As they shift socially they are also experiencing tremendous changes emotionally and intellectually. As they wade through all the difficulties of this time of life, they have real questions and need real answers. If parish leaders ignore the unique challenges of their middle school youth, they risk losing them forever.
