Middle School

EDGE is a dynamic Catholic middle school ministry program for tweens in the greater Brookfield, Elm Grove, Menomonee Falls, Pewaukee, and Wauwatosa area.

While our in-person ministries are currently suspended due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we still seek to provide the opportunity for young people to seek, know, and become Christ by accompanying you in your faith journey. Edge is a community of middle school teens in 6th-8th grades who gather to enjoy the gift of friendship while growing in faith and virtue. It is a time to explore, share,  ask questions, and pray in a nonjudgmental environment that is safe and welcoming.

EDGE is not an exclusive club and it's not just for Catholic Tweens. Edge strengthens our teen's Catholic identity while providing them with the support they need.  All middle school students are welcome to join us!

Retreat

Have you been looking for a way to dive deeper into your faith, but you are exhausted from screen time? Join us for a 14 & 1/2 day retreat. Happy! is a self-guided retreat. You will receive a book in which to follow along and we will have short check-ins over the 14 days to chat about our experiences!

If your teen would like to join in the prayer experience, but you are not a fan of digital gatherings on Zoom or you are still not comfortable meeting in person with physical distancing, your teen is still able to register and join. We will order the book for you to pick up from the Parish Center so that your teen can journey with us in spirit, experiencing the same content and prayer experiences as their peers! 

Kick- off: July 7 // 10:00-11:00 AM - No-contact game and prayer in person with physical distancing to get us started right.
Daily Check In: July 8-21 // 2:00-2:30 PM - via zoom (Link in registration).
Closing Session: July 22 //10:00-11:00 AM - No-contact game, closing meditation, and prayer to close the experience!

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!
