Our Wednesday night Middle School program is taking on a new name: EDGE! This new program is designed for middle school students in grades six, seven, and eight. EDGE is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adolescents. Along with this, extra emphasis will be placed on preparing our middle school students to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in 9th grade.
In a world that places such high demands, both physically & emotionally, on our youth, St. Bart’s is looking to provide them with the “EDGE” they need to be successful in this life: Jesus, Scripture, Sacraments and the Church. In and through the context of the Catholic faith, our program is designed to help our junior high students grow in both virtue and prayer, discovering that their true identity lies in Christ, and ultimate success is a life with Him. Through interactive catechesis, engaging small group discussion, passionate catechists, social events and service, we hope to show our junior high youth the importance of their role in our church community here at St. Bart’s and the greater Church across the globe.
