Edge Middle School Ministry kicks off on Wednesday, September 14, 2016
What is the Edge?
The Edge at Holy Spirit parish is a Catholic youth ministry program for Middle School youth in grades 6-8. It is designed to meet the catechetical, educational, spiritual, emotional and social needs of young adolescents.
What makes the Edge unique?
Edge approaches catechesis to Middle Schoolers using a dynamic ministry model. During an EDGE Night, the 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 young adolescent’s life.
With new catechetical themes delivered each year, the youth minister and the Edge core team have a variety of topics to explore and teach to the youth. This creative and experiential approach engages youth to understand Catholic teaching and form their Catholic identity.
When are EDGE Nights?
The Edge Nights are scheduled every other Wednesday from 7:00-8:30 p.m. beginning in the Fall and ending in the Spring. Some weeks may vary due to holidays and school breaks.
The 6 p.m. Mass. We invite all youth and their families to attend the 6 p.m. contemporary music Mass every Sunday. We also strongly encourage the youth to get involved as a liturgical minister. Middle Schoolers can sign up to be altar servers and ushers.
