In 2013-2014, we introduced the Edge Middle School Ministry. Seeking to engage Middle Schoolers as a community, and ultimately, in relationship with Jesus Christ. Led by an energetic and faith-filled core team, the Edge consists of youth-ministry-style programming for grades 6-8. After a gathering game/activity, middle schoolers take part in a large-group lesson, then break off into small groups for discussion and activity. Edge session topics are often following the catechetical theme for the semester, but may also be service-oriented, social, or focus on a current issue. Edge sessions take place at the same time as weekly elementary Religious Education classes – 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in Fr. Cherne Hall at Ss. Cyril & Methodius.
Besides the weekly sessions, the Edge also provides an annual retreat. This year, our retreat was led by the Spiritus team from Menasha, WI. We had a great time getting to know this great group of young adults who travel around our state giving incredible retreats for young people
Youth Ministry in the Tri-Parish Community is growing! Please encourage the young people that you know, and keep us in your prayers!
