For students in 6th, 7th, and 8th Grades 

EDGE Nights are our main outreach to Junior High students in addition to serving as the Religious Education program at St. Mary’s for students in grades 6, 7, and 8. EDGE is offered in two sessions on Mondays; an early session from 5-6:15pm and a late session from 6:45-8:00pm. EDGE is a youth ministry program put out by Life Teen International which we at St. Mary’s use as the basis of our teaching in order to form teens in the faith, build community among them, and help them encounter Jesus Christ. Registration for the 2020-2021 school year is now OPEN. Learn more about EDGE Nights and how to register below!

Due to COVID-19 we are still ironing out the guidelines and logistics of what each EDGE night will look like this fall. Thank you for being patient with us.


EDGE always begins and ends in the parish hall; students gather with the same small group each week in the parish hall, where we will do the teaching and large group portion of the night. After the large group time, the small groups have time in the classrooms to break open the topic and let the small group leaders help them walk through how this topic applies to their lives! At the end of each night, there will always be a time of prayer to help apply this topic directly to their relationship with God. We will always send home a summary of the night’s topic and main points so that parents can cover the material with the students that missed, so that they don’t fall behind in what we are discussing.


EDGE is offered twice each Monday; an early session from 5-6:15pm, and a late session from 6:45-8:00pm. This will allow the group to be a little more intimate, and will hopefully give options for anyone who has practice or other extracurricular activities on Monday evenings.


One of the most important things to making EDGE dynamic and successful are the Core Team. These are adult small group leaders who come to each EDGE night and walk with their young people; they help these teens break open the faith, and walk with them on this path to discipleship. If you think you might be able to help, please check out the page below for information!

Registration will be up by July 15th, 2020.

Parent Meeting

Before the start of our year, we will be hosting informational meetings for parents. We ask that at least one parent from each family attend one of the two meeting options. Further information on the date of this will be up shortly.
