Middle School Lock-In February 9-10, 2018

The Middle School Lock ­In is an overnight experience created for sixth, seventh and eighth graders designed to take place on the parish grounds. The middle school youth will learn more about their Catholic faith and be challenged to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ. This is a free event and takes place in the Parish Hall.

Service Learning Projects

We will organize many opportunities for youth and families to serve Our Lord by being His hands and feet within our parish, local and extended community. Project dates and descriptions are coming soon. Last year, the Edge participants had an opportunity to complete over 52 service hours to various projects and foundations.

Get Involved

Our EDGE Middle School Ministry is looking for parents of middle school kids, other adults, and high school juniors and seniors  to minister to our middle school youth on Monday Nights. There are many ways you can help. Please consider helping to share God’s message with our middle school youth.
