Edge is a fun night for Middle School students to regularly meet together to strengthen their knowledge of Catholic Church teaching and to deepen their personal faith in Christ.
Many opportunities occur on Edge Nights to worship the Lord through music, small group discussions, prayer, Scripture, and service projects. Friendships will develop into a great Edge community where the kids can feel at home in the Church and live out their faith in an open, fun, and relevant way.
Each semester covers a new topic from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and by the time a sixth grade student reaches the end of eighth grade, they will have covered all the basics of the Catholic faith. These teachings are presented in a unique way that speaks to Middle School students and helps them to put their faith into action in the things they face in their daily lives.
The topic for Fall Semester of 2017 is Morality. They will learn about knowing right from wrong, sin and grace, making good choices, how their choices affect society, and social justice. This topic is so important for our youth to learn and implement at this age and in this culture!
Edge Nights are in Beltran Hall on Sundays from 5:30-7:30pm. However, it is highly encouraged for the Edge students and their families to attend Life Teen Mass at 4pm, followed by dinner at 5pm in Beltran Hall before the Edge Night begins at 5:30pm.
Parents of Edge students will receive a calendar indicating which Sundays are off for a break. The calendar also shows activities such as off-campus service projects and family nights.
Register your 6th, 7th, and 8th graders for Edge. They will love it and they will grow so much!
The success of a dynamic program like Edge is dependent upon volunteers. Without adult Edge Core volunteers to work with our youth in small groups, the program could not exist. If you are interested in serving on the Edge Core Team, or assisting in some other way, please contact the Middle School Edge Coordinator, Carrie Barham by email or phone. We would love to have you serve on our wonderful team!
