Edge Viera (Grades 6th-8th) is a middle school youth ministry that leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church. Edge Nights offer middle school teens an enriching experience with their faith while growing in fellowship. We meet Wednesday evenings in the Hall from 6:00PM-7:30PM. Due to COVID-19, CDC and Diocesan Guidelines will be strictly enforced so that we can enjoy the privilege of meeting in person for this ministry. Masks are not required, but are strongly recommended.

The registration fee helps cover the cost of the resources we use to plan our gatherings, special events, and retreats.
