EDGE Program

“Then he said to them all, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.'” – Luke 9:23

EDGE is a Catholic middle school youth ministry for early adolescents in grades 6-8. It is designed to meet the catechetical, educational, spiritual, emotional and social needs of young adolescents.

EDGE approaches catechesis to middle school youth using the Life Teen model. They are removed from behind classroom desks and brought into a large-group environment for gathering activities, teachings and prayer. In small groups, they break open the teachings and build solid, Christ-centered relationships that allow them to comfortably explore their Catholic faith and make it relevant to their everyday lives. This helps build safe relationships during some of the most formative years of a teen’s life.
