Middle School Edge Program Overview

Thank you all for your feedback with our Faith Formation Survey.  Everyone’s voices were heard and we are going to make this year a great and safe adventure for all our parish children and catechists.

Beginning in January middle school students entering 6th thru 8th grade will have to attend class virtually.   The class time will be Wednesday 7 pm to 8 pm.   The parish is purchasing laptops, cameras and mics to bring everyone together.   This new curriculum is very much about meeting middle school youth in their daily life and supporting their spiritual development as they approach Confirmation in High School.  Edge is the program within LifeTeen that has been used in hundreds of parishes around the world.    Each lesson will be available and easy to follow along in the class or at home so that parents and catechist can support each young person to the best of our ability.
