Parent Support & Info

Welcome to the EDGE! Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry. Our goal is to give our middle school youth the edge, the Catholic edge, the Jesus edge as they go through this time of remarkable change in their lives.

Here at St. Pius X, the EDGE is our faith formation program for grades 6 – 8.  However, it is open to all 6th – 8th graders and their friends!  Attendance is required for 8th grade Confirmation Candidates (who do not attend a Catholic school), in addition to other items as indicated on the Confirmation Covenant.

In many respects middle school youth are on the edge because so much is going on in their lives socially, physically, mentally and spiritually. It can be a stressful time for them and for you. That is why there is the Edge! Young people who develop a faith life in middle school are more likely to continue practicing their faith through high school, college and beyond. While their peers begin to take on a more significant role during these years, middle school youth are still very connected and influenced by their parents. They are still want and desire a close relationship with you and other adults in their lives.


That is why we are welcoming you to the Edge also. We consider your participation in this ministry extremely important:

                Clear your child’s schedule for the 1st and 3rd Tuesday nights of each month. Make Edge Nights your child’s
                Tuesday night commitment.  They will thank you for it!


                Come to our Mass on Saturday evenings at 5:00pm. We invite our Life Teen and Edge youth and their families
                to join us to worship together. The music and the homily are geared toward young people.


                Join our Edge Core Team. You may think they do not want you there, but the truth is,
they do. Being a part of
                the Core Team will help you stay involved in your child’s spiritual
development. We will assign you to a different
                small group than your child as well. Your
interaction with your child’s peers will give you valuable insight into the
                mind of a middle
school youth.

                Use the Parent Support sheet sent home each week with your child to extend the learning that was begun at
                the EDGE night.  Each take-home flyer includes Scripture, selections from the Catechism of the Catholic Church,
                and questions that you can discus with your child.  Please let us know how else we can support you in your role
                as your child's primary catechist.
