Our Youth Ministry for Middle School (EDGE) & Youth Ministry for High School (LIFE TEEN) evening gatherings include prayer, dinner, music, and games, all in a welcoming and safe atmosphere. The program goal is to allow youths the opportunities to learn about and encounter the Lord personally, and to take that love into the world.

Our Parish joins an organizational family of 1800+ parishes around the world with a mission to “Lead Teens Closer to Christ.”  Since 1985, Edge and Life Teen ministries have been reaching out to teens around the world, and we are excited to be a part of it.

Our middle school youth in grades 6th – 8th have an opportunity to learn the Catholic faith in a fun and active way. The Edge program allows the Edge Core Team to tackle fresh catechetical themes which are delivered each semester with creative and experiential     approach that engages the 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. Edge provides a safe place for youth to find solid Catholic community, ask questions about their faith, and form their Catholic identity.

If you would like to serve the youth as a Core Team Member for Edge or if you are a parent who would like to help, please contact Monica Bonfe Erickson.
