EDGE (Grades 7-8)


Saint Francis of Assisi EDGE

7th & 8th Grade Youth Ministry Program

What is EDGE?


Saint Francis of Assisi EDGE, is a youth ministry program for all 7th & 8th graders of Saint Francis of Assisi Parish.   This is a program where our youth can learn about their faith, find a Catholic community, and experience Jesus all while having fun.   As young adolescents are moving from a child-like spirituality, it is our goal with EDGE to help them develop an adult faith commitment to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Community.
EDGE is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adolescents.   The Catholic teaching is presented in a way that our youth can understand at their age.   It provides a foundation for our youth to continue to grow in their faith in a catechetical, fun, and relevant way for this age group.   As our youth are growing, they have real questions and need real answers.   EDGE is a way for us to recognize these unique challenges of this age and provide them the information they desire.
