Do you have an hour and a half on Tuesday nights you could spare to help middle schoolers grow in their faith? We are looking for adult and high school Catholics to join our Core Team and help lead our Edge youth this year. You don’t need to be a trained teacher to help out, just a willingness to help. Contact Melissa Choate at 781-326-0550 ext 127  for more information.

Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe 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. Edge resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth. Edge resources make it easier for youth ministers to plan out their semesters of Edge Night, retreats, and to train a team of adults, the Core Team, to assist them in the ministry. The resources present Catholic teaching in a way that young people can understand. This means that youth minsters get to spend less time at the desk and more time reaching out to youth. Edge provides many resources and support to help youth ministers reach out to parents and to connect with the families of middle school youth. Edge also connects youth ministers to a veteran team of youth ministers to assist them as well as providing ample opportunities for training. Edge answers the needs of this age group in a catechetical, fun, and relevant way and provides a foundation for youth to continue onto Life Teen. Edge is a great asset to any youth ministry program and answers the unique needs of this age group.

The Edge night occurs every Tuesday evening from 6:30-8:00pm during the school year. Edge also has educational, faith, social, and recreational activities designed to create a greater sense of community among our middle school youth and for the youth to have fun and enjoy themselves in a Church setting.  Edge sponsors a retreat and periodically holds trips during the summer.
We invite Edge youth to join the St. Mary’s community on Sunday nights for the 5:00pm Life Teen Mass, a powerful Mass that is geared to our youth. Contemporary liturgical music and homilies geared toward young people, which brings the gospel message of Jesus home to middle school youth, high school teens, young adults, and adults of all ages.
We would love to have any middle school youth join us for Edge this year. If you are not Catholic, we would still welcome you to join us at Edge, or just to come see what we are all about.
