NEWS + UPDATES

We had an incredible EDGE summer! We set a new record number of middle school youth attending EDGE camp, had weekly Slice & Scripture Bible Studies, and grew in community during some crazy FREDGE nights (water balloon fights and ice cream, anyone?). Thanks to all our awesome middle schoolers who joined us as we pursued our faith and community in new ways!

Fall is coming soon and so registration season begins!

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.
