Welcome Middle School Youth!
Our middle school youth in grades 6th -8th have an opportunity to learn the Catholic faith in a fun and active way. They also tackle fresh catechetical themes which are delivered each semester with creative and experiential approach that engages youth to understand Catholic teaching and form their own Catholic identity.
EDGE Nights occur Friday Nights, twice a month during the school year. We also have fun activities and service opportunities that create a greater sense of community among our middle school youth. Typical activities during the year may include the March for Life in Washington D.C., Ablaze Conference at Ave Maria University, the Steubenville Conference in Orlando, and support at Metropolitan Ministries and Pinellas Hope. Additionally, the teens are the backbone of the week-long Vacation Bible School (VBS) program held in the third week of June each year. The program goal is to take the lessons from the classroom and put them into life to benefit others, a true response to Matthew 28.
Bring your friends to EDGE!

Sacrament Preparation: Confirmation
Our Confirmation program is now a two-year process, beginning in the 7th Grade and continuing into the 8th Grade. New for the 7th Grade Pre-Confirmation year is the highly acclaimed series “Decision Point” by Matthew Kelly. The 8th Grade Sacramental year utilizes the inspiring series by Chris Stefanik of Franciscan University, “Chosen.” In the 8th Grade, there is a retreat at Bethany Center in the Spring and the Sacrament itself by the Bishop after Easter.
