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 at St. Mary's takes place Wednesday evenings with over 180 registered middle schoolers. With a team of adult core small group leaders, co-lead with high school teen core members, middle schoolers start the evening with a large group teaching and game followed by small group discussion allowing them to explore the topic in their own way.

We are always looking for more Adults to help with our Edge Core team. The commitment involves showing up every Wednesday (Sept – April) and co-leading a small group of about 12 middle schoolers. In those groups, you will facilitate discussions, activities, and personal sharing. All materials and plans planning will be provided. This is a wonderful opportunity to help pass your faith on to the next generation.
If you are interested, please email Jenn Martin at email@example.com. Jenn will contact you, new volunteers will need to set up a short interview with Jenn.
PRAY ABOUT IT, YOU MAY BE CALLED.
