St. Benedict Middle School Ministry

The Edge Program

Our 6th, 7th and 8th graders participate in our EDGE program, from Life Teen.  Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program, providing a safe and fun place for youth to find a solid Catholic community, and experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. EDGE resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational and spiritual maturation of middle school youth. The resources present Catholic teaching in a way that young people can understand. 

EDGE meets two Sundays per month. We are over-capacity in our middle school youth numbers and will be making a change beginning in the 2024-2025 school year. All EDGE sessions will take place at Taylor Lodge on the grounds of St. Benedict campus.

Registration for our 2024-2025 school year is now open.

Our Edge Objectives

6th and 7th grade:  Our main objective is to create community amongst youth believers with fun, engaging, and moving content and speakers.  The content and activities for these students change every year.

8th Grade: Youth begin preparation for their Confirmation during 8th grade faith formation (mandatory).  Our focus during EDGE for our 8th graders will be to the Kerygma (the proclamation of the gospel message that all believers are called to share. It is the core message of the Christian faith).
