MIDDLE SCHOOL MINISTRY
EDGE is the Life-Teen program designed for the Middle School aged teen.
It aims to meet the spiritual, educational, emotional, and social needs of middle school youth. No longer children but not yet adolescents, middle school youth are in the middle of countless changes in their lives and literally on "the edge", about to cross into the thick of their teenage years.
This program and its leaders address these changes as the youth try to figure out who they are in this world and in the Church. While the youth move from a childlike spirituality into a more adult faith, EDGE helps the youth to come to own their Catholic faith.
Middle School EDGE & Confirmation
Here at St. Pius X we use the EDGE program in conjunction with our Sacrament of Confirmation preparation.
This is a two-year program that begins in 7th grade and is completed with the entrance into high school. Through a variety of teaching methods, middle school teens engage in large group learning, small group discussions, ice-breakers, team builders, skits, music, activities, games, various prayer forms and much more.
In addition to the regular EDGE nights, the teens participate in service opportunities and retreats. All programming and events are designed to foster the youths' growth in their personal relationships with Christ and his Church.
