The Edge is a Catholic junior high school youth ministry for early adolescents in grades 7-8. It is designed to meet the catechetical, educational, spiritual, emotional and social needs of young adolescents.
Edge approaches catechesis to junior high students, with new catechetical themes delivered every semester. We have a variety of topics to explore and teach to our youth. This creative and experiential approach engages youth to understand Catholic teaching and form their Catholic identity. Junior High youth are removed from behind classroom desks and brought into a large-group environment for gathering activities, teachings and prayer. In small groups, they break open the teachings and build solid, Christ-centered relationships that allow them to comfortably explore their Catholic faith and make it relevant to their everyday lives. This helps build safe relationships during some of the most formative years of a teen’s life.
