EDGE is our middle school youth ministry offering 6th, 7th, and 8th graders a chance to feel a part of the Church community. We seek to do this in an engaging way by offering engaging nights that focus on a brief teaching and discussion on a certain faith topic. This is open to any and all middle schoolers, 6-8th grade. For up to date info, please refer to our calendar.

 

For 6th, 7th & 8th Graders:

These sessions offer middle schoolers a chance to learn about their Catholic faith in a fun and relatable way and grow in the Church community, being first engaged with a plethora of food, activities, and social time before moving into a brief teaching and small group discussion. 

 

EXALT (Thursdays || 7-8:30PM). Focusing on a new topic each week, this time provides fun, fellowship, and prayer.
 

GRACE GROUP (Tuesdays || 3-4:30PM). A special girls group for our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls! Join us for a time of community as we pray together through art and journey together in a deeper understanding of faith.
