Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program that 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.
We all remember that middle school was awkward and difficult. That hasn’t changed. However, societal shifts have made the middle school years more difficult than ever. Today, middle school youth are having experiences that were common only with high school students just 15 years ago. Threats of violence, availability of drugs and alcohol, and pervasiveness of sex and pornography are the new norm. Not only are they faced with these tough realities but they are also in the process of moving from being family-centered to friend-centered.
Edge exists to give middle school youth a safe place where they are free to be themselves, surrounded by others seeking Christ. Our goal is to help each youth fall in love with the God who is already madly in love with them.
Edge meets on Friday nights from 7:00 – 8:30 pm in the Parish Hall at Blessed Sacrament. Each Edge Night is filled with fun and games, is centered on Church teaching and Scripture, and gives the youth an avenue to share their faith through small group discussion.
Any student in 6th-8th grade is welcome to come to Edge, whether you are in public school, private school, homeschool, or if you are Catholic or non-Catholic.
