Saint Francis of Assisi EDGE
7th & 8th Grade Youth Ministry Program
Saint Francis of Assisi EDGE, is our parish’s youth ministry program for all 7th & 8th grade youth of our parish who attend public, private, and home schools This is a program where our youth can learn about their faith, find a Catholic community, and experience Jesus all while having fun and serving others. As young adolescents are moving from a child-like spirituality, it is our goal with EDGE to help them develop an adult faith commitment to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Community.
