EDGE (6th – 8th Grade)



EDGE is a program geared specifically for 6th – 8th graders — those who are on the “EDGE” of adolescence. It is a spin-off of the popular Life Teen High School program.

EDGE meets every Wednesday of the school year from 6:30-7:45 p.m.

EDGE nights, which are what the sessions are called, don’t follow a typical religious education classroom style.  Instead, they are run by a Core Team, who not only facilitate the small group break-out sessions but also present the EDGE night material in skits, games, and talks.  Consequently, EDGERs (the 6-8th graders who attend) experience an evening filled with hands-on activities, both in large and small group settings, while they also get to know other Catholic teens in a friendly, spiritual environment!
