EDGE Middle School (Grades 6–8)
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.
Edge Nights are inviting, exciting, and engaging sessions that give young people the answers that they desperately need to the challenging questions that they are confronted with in the world today. Edge Nights usually take place on Sunday nights throughout the school year. Each Edge Night begins with the LifeTeen Mass at St. Francis at 5:00pm, followed by a session at St. Peter/St. Francis School from 6:00-7:30pm.
