EDGE Middle School (Gr 6-8)
EDGE MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY
Our EDGE Middle School program partners with our Family Formation program. Families will gather together once a month as a community. That evening, parents & kids will split up into age based groups to all learn & discuss the same monthly faith based topic. EDGE kids will explore & discuss the topic together with other middle school students and their adult small group leaders.
The EDGE program is open to all 6-8th-grade parish youth. We focus on providing a community of faith-filled kids and adults who grow together, pray together, serve together, and laugh together.
