Vision & Goals

This program ministers to our 6th - 8th graders and their friends.  The purpose is to share our Catholic faith in a welcoming environment with the needs of middle school youth in mind.

Middle school kids are "on the edge" because so much is going on in their lives physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially. Adolescence        can be a very stressful time for them and their parents. As a Catholic Community, St. Pius X strives to give our middle school youth The Edge they need in life: Jesus, the Word, the Eucharist, and the Church!


1.    To foster a transforming spiritual experience of Jesus through the liturgy which will allow

       middle school youth to experience the Word of God and the Eucharist in a more profound way.


2.    To create a positive experience of the Catholic Church for middle school youth.


3.    To assist middle school youth in gaining an understanding and appreciation of what the Catholic

       Church teaches and believes.


4.    To incorporate the Catholic Church’s vision of social justice and peace into the spiritual lives of

       middle school youth.


5.    To develop an understanding in middle school youth that they are a vital presence within the

       parish community.


6.    To enter into and transform the culture and lives of middle school youth with the Good News of

       Jesus Christ and His Church.
