Middle School Religious Ed

"The most effective catechetical program for adolescents are integrated into a comprehensive program of pastoral ministry for youth that includes catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care, and prayer and worship. Such programs aim to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today; to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community; and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person."
(National Directory for Catechesis, p. 201)  

In addition to the Edge Youth Ministry program, the middle school youth will take a deeper look into their prayer life and their relationship with God, discuss the significance of Mary and the saints in their lives, and work on a deeper understanding of the sacraments of the Catholic Church.  The middle school youth will also learn more about the church and explore the beautiful gifts of scripture and liturgy within the church.  They will also participate in service projects to serve our church and community.
