EDGE is more than a program, it’s a life-giving ministry. EDGE will ensure that your youth have access to amazing resources and leaders that teach and model how the Catholic faith is lived out. EDGE is a place to learn about true joy, that comes from God, through the love Jesus Christ. EDGE is a place for faith, fellowship, and fun. This is a place our youth learn to become disciples of Christ.
*NOTE: EDGE is an optional add-on for 6th graders; Confirmation preparation is not a part of EDGE.
Shine Youth Rally is a unique event specifically designed for middle school youth with a goal of helping them to have an encounter with Jesus or renew and deeper their encounter with Jesus. This rally exists to inspire conversion, prayer and love of Christ Jesus in the context of the Catholic faith.
Through the sacramental Church lived out in community, Shine Youth Rally aims to lead middle school youth into an encounter with God. This encounter is personal, yet lived live out in the Catholic community. This encounter is intimacy with Jesus, and is manifest through a “yes” to faith. Shine is not about being boring, it is about the faith coming alive to “let your light shine before others” (Matthew 5:16).
We are faithful to the Magisterium with devotion to the Eucharistic Lord Jesus, seeking the intercession of Mary, Mother of God.
Alpha Youth is an interactive series exploring the basics of the Christian faith typically run over 10 weeks with a retreat. In each session you eat food, watch a talk, and discuss questions in small groups.
Throughout each episode, there are three discussion breaks that give everyone a chance to share thoughts and ideas in small groups without fear of being corrected or judged. Along the way there are opportunities to experience worship through music and moments of prayer.

Be Free—to radically change young women’s self perception and to help them live freely and confidently.
Be Love—to teach and empower young women to be God’s love in the world today.
