During this stage of adolescence, most youth experience greta changes in almost every area of their life — physically, their bodies are changing; emotionally, there is a new range of emotions, requests for independence, questions about spirituality, shifts in friendships, and more.
While they may no longer want to be treated like children, many times they are not able to handle the complexities of adolescence on their own. Thus, EDGE was formed to address the unique needs of our middle school youth.
A major component of the ministry are EDGE Connect Groups. These gender-based, faith sharing groups meet the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month from 3:15PM-4:45PM in the parish. These groups provide the youth an opportunity to build their faith in community with their peers. Other faith-filled experiences, such as retreats, outreach events, and evangelization activities, occur on various dates and times throughout the year.
