This Fall, we will be taking a look at decisions. All of our decisions in life lead us in one direction or another. Even choosing not to choose is making a decision. Our Fall Semester, “Choices,” dives into the very beginning of decision making and morality. It will cover what it means to make a good decision and why humanity has the ability to make decisions. We’re looking forward to a fun, educational, and powerful Fall!  All rising 6th-rising 8th graders are welcome!

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.


SLICE & SCRIPTURE: Join us for Mass at 5:30 p.m. in the Daily Mass Chapel, followed by pizza & games, praise & worship, and Bible Study. Thursdays from 6-8 p.m., Teen Room.

ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SERVICE OPPORTUNITY: Help serve dinner to the families in downtown Phoenix OR work with youth on homework, literacy and fun! Families are encouraged to serve together & all participants meet at the facility. Monthly on Wednesdays from 4 – 6:30 p.m. Sign up here!

FREDGE (Friday Night EDGE): Games, fellowship, food & community aiming at building holy friendships. Monthly on Fridays, 7-9 p.m. in Fenlon Hospitality Center (unless otherwise noted).
