About Us

EDGE is a dynamic Catholic community for middle school students (6th-8th grade) that provides an environment to encounter Jesus and find their true identity in Him.  We offer both a Large Group Ministry (Sunday Night Edge) and a small group ministry (Emmaus). All middle school students are welcome to participate in our ministries. There is no fee to attend!

Our Ministries

Sunday Night EDGE

EDGE is the start of your adventure as a disciple. Teens gather together to hang out, relax, connect with peers and caring adults to discuss life, listen to a message, and worship with praise music.

EDGE is held on Sunday evenings in the PAAC (Parish Arts & Activities Center).  Doors open at 4:00 p.m. with the program starting at 4:15 p.m. 

All middle school students are welcome to join us! It is FREE to attend.

Emmaus Small Groups

 Emmaus is Lectionary-based discipleship small groups that are designed to help teenagers gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for Sacred Scripture and the Holy Mass.  Emmaus meets weekly (twice a month in-person in the St. Dominic Student Lounge and twice a month virtually) to pray, discuss scripture, and walk with one another in our faith journey.  Small groups are great for anyone desiring community and wishing to grow in their love for Jesus Christ and His Church.  Emmaus is open to all middle school teens.

Our Core Team is literally at the core of everything we do. Our Core Team is a group of volunteer ministers who give their time and talents to accompany teens to seek Christ, know Christ, and become Christ. Very simply, a Core member's job is to share Jesus Christ with teens. Their job is relational ministry which shows teens that they are valued and loved by God.

If you feel like Core Team is something that you would like to join, please arrange a time with Erika or Andrew to grab a cup of coffee (our treat) and discuss further!
