Middle school ministry, also known as EDGE, is at the service of offering middle schoolers a chance to feel a part of the Church community. We seek to do this in an engaging way by offering fun communal nights that focus on a brief teaching and discussion on a certain faith topic. This is open to 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.
