EDGE MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY
Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe and fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get
answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.

OUR PLAN TO KEEP OUR YOUTH ACTIVELY CATHOLIC.
CHALLENGE:  “YOUNG PEOPLE ARE LEAVING THE CHURCH...”
13 YEARS OLD is the average age youth leave the Church today.
23% BY AGE 10
63% AGES 10-17


*These statistics are taken from a recent CARA (Center for Applied Research in the Apostalate study)


WHY IS EDGE EFFECTIVE?
Now more than ever middle school youth need the truth and love of Jesus Christ to guide their lives and they need tShe faith presented in a way that makes sense to them and is relevant to their lives. Edge accomplishes this and builds a foundation of faith that will guide the youth as they face many difficulties and help them as they begin to make decisions that affect the rest of their teen years. As middle school youth wade through all the difficulties of this time of life, they have real questions and need real answers. If parish leaders ignore the unique challenges of their middle school youth, they risk losing them forever.
