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 Middle School Youth Night

Our EDGE Youth Nights are on Monday nights starting with extra hangout time at 5:45pm, then the actual Youth Night from 6:00-7:30pm. We have time for games, snack, a talk, small group to discuss and ask those questions you really want answers to. It's a safe place to come, make friends and grow in your faith. Come join us on Monday nights and don't forget to invite your friends!

Masks are recommended but not required. Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies will be available and will be used during the evening when needed.

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.
