Middle School Youth Ministry – Edge
Edge is open to all youth in grades 6-8 and meets most Sundays in Sullivan Hall from 6-8pm.
The History: Edge is part of Life Teen, an international Catholic ministry, founded in Mesa, AZ, in 1985. Since then, it has spread to 31 countries, and 1,600 parishes. It is a comprehensive youth ministry program based on, focused on, and directed toward the Eucharist. The Edge, now in over 1,100 parishes, is geared specifically to middle school adolescents who are on “the Edge” because so much is going on in their lives. 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.
Parents interested in observing a program are asked to contact Cat Imholte, in advance, for arrangements.
The goal is to lead the youth closer to Christ.
Edge is based on the USCCB's framework of Catechesis.
