What is Edge? Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe and fun place for youth to find a solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.
Why do Edge? Now more than ever middle school youth need the truth and love of Jesus Christ to guide their lives. They also need the faith presented in a way that makes sense to them and is relevant to their lives. Edge accomplishes this and builds a foundation of faith that will guide the youth as they face many difficulties, helping them as they begin to make decisions that affect the rest of their teen years.
As middle school youth wade through all the difficulties of this time of life, they have real questions and need real answers. Edge is designed to answer these questions and help guide them through difficult times by way of building relationships with other youth and with their CORE team adults.
Edge meets on Wednesday nights from 6-7:30pm in the Parish Hall.

The Core Team is a team of committed members of the Church who have chosen to volunteer their time and talents (and even treasures) to minister to the high school teens. Each Core member is trained in basic youth ministry skills, from facilitating small groups to public speaking to leading prayer sessions. Above all, they are committed to forming relationships with the youth and being a strong witness of the Catholic faith.
