The EDGE is an Intermediate School Catholic Youth Ministry experience created for early adolescents in grades six, seven and eight.
Orientation is September 11th at 7pm in the Parish Hall. Calendars and further details will be given.
Sixth Grade EDGE meets separately on Wednesdays 4:45pm-6PM.
EDGE 7th and 8th Grade meets on Sunday late Afternoons from 3:30pm to 5:15pm in the Parish Hall.
The EDGE is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional and social needs of young adolescents. Youth are encouraged to bring their friends to The EDGE even if they are not Catholic. At this age, Intermediate Youth are open to good and bad behaviors as well as positive and negative ideas. Many of the values and beliefs they held as children are now questioned and challenged. As young adolescents they are trying to figure out who they are and what they believe.
In many respects, Intermediate Youth 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 have the opportunity to give our middle school youth The EDGE they need in life: Jesus, the Word, the Eucharist, and the Church!
Within the context of faith, Intermediate Youth are moving from a childlike spirituality to one that will hopefully reach its pinnacle, through the work of The EDGE, into a more adult faith commitment to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Community.
