NEWS + UPDATES

This Spring, we are diving into Existence, our semester on the Creed, with incredible EDGE nights that ask the fundamental questions: Who is God? Who am I? What does it mean to be Catholic? So far, we’ve seen some crazy skits, heard inspiring talks, and spent some much needed time in prayer. The fun is just beginning & we can’t wait to see what God has in store for our youth this semester!

ALL ABOUT EDGE

Within the context of faith, middle school youth are moving from a child-like spirituality to one that will hopefully reach its pinnacle, through the work of EDGE, into an adult faith commitment to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Community.

The name “EDGE” recognizes that middle school youth are on the EDGE in their life, and if we as a church don’t do something about it, they’re going to fall off the EDGE and we are never ever going to see them again. But, at the same time, we as a church are going to give them the EDGE they need in life: Jesus Christ, the Sacraments, Sacred Scripture, the Teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, and a Catholic Community to love, nurture and challenge them. EDGE nights are held Mondays from 7 – 8:30 p.m. in Fenlon Hospitality Center.
