EDGE Middle School (Grades 6–8)

About EDGE

Edge is a 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 resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth. Edge resources make it easier for youth ministers to plan out their semesters of Edge Night, retreats, and to train a team of adults, the Core Team, to assist them in the ministry. The resources present Catholic teaching in a way that young people can understand.


Please be assured that our top priority is the health and safety of our students, families and our volunteers. We have been working diligently on our 2020- 2021 academic curriculum/procedures to ensure that our environment will meet social distancing guidelines. Given our numbers in our LifeTeen/EDGE program, we are confident that we can accomplish this in our gymnasium with students seated 6 feet apart and wearing masks during any movement.

Edge Nights

Edge Nights will continue to be inviting, exciting, and engaging sessions that help young people find the answers that they desperately need to the challenging questions that they are confronted with in the world today.

To address concerns about in-person gatherings, we have decided to hold just one monthly in-person gathering on the first Sunday of the month, socially distancing in the school gym, followed by weekly Sunday evening online catechesis.
