Edge (7th & 8th Grade)

Edge Viera (Grades 7th-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 REQUIRED. For your safety, food will not be permitted in the meeting space, so consider having a snack before attending the meeting and plan to have dinner with your families afterward.



Our youth have a great opportunity to enter more deeply into Lent this year.  We are invited to join Ascension Catholic Church for a day retreat on Feb. 13, 2021.  The retreat begins at 11:30 am at Wickham Park Pavilion 1 and ends with pick up at 8:15 pm from the Ascension youth room.   Lunch and dinner are provided.  Teens are encouraged to wear sneakers and comfortable, appropriate clothing.  The cost is $25 until February 1stand $30 after.

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