Edge is our Jr. High Youth Group and primary catechesis for middle-schoolers in grades 6-8 for those not attending Catholic school, and supplementary for those who do. However, you do not have to be Catholic to join in, just come with an open heart for Jesus and an open mind to grow in faith. Our youth participate in activities, enjoy engaging presentations, make it real in small groups and pray together as a community. Our nights are facilitated by a trained Core Team dedicated to helping our middle-schoolers find their own faith through the Gifts of the Spirit and helping them grow through sharing experiences and example.

Dear Parents,

It’s that time of year again and you may have seen all the registration materials arrive in your mailbox. We will be kicking off our Youth Ministry program on Sept. 12th, 2021 after 5:30pm Mass in the soccer field. Keep an eye out for details on this amazing event (it will be unlike anything St. Charles has done before). Our first Edge Night will be Sept. 19th, 2021. Edge is open to ANY 6th-8th grader and while you may have received the registration materials in the mail, you can also register online by clicking the link below. We hope to see everyone there!!

Some things to take note on…

*Edge nights are part of confirmation preparation for both 8th grade Catholic School and Public School students. Please pay attention to these requirements as they are different. Public School students must attend 75% of Edge Nights (21 Edge Nights) and Catholic school students must attend 4 sessions which have the red dotted outline on the calendar. Those dates are: October 3, November 21 (this is a change from the calendar), January 9, and February 6.

*Edge will be from 5:30pm – 8:30 pm beginning with Mass and then we will move into the Parish Hall in the Church Lower Level. Dinner will be provided.  

 If you would prefer to pay by cash or check, paper registration forms can be picked up at the Parish Office or printed from the PDF located in this link. 

Please return forms and tuition to the Parish Office or at the Welcome Desk on any Sunday morning.  Checks should be made payable to St. Charles with Youth Formation in the memo. If you are in need of a scholarship, please contact the Parish office at 419-228-7635.
