Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program that unites an authentic faith formation with a plain, good old fun time. As a component of Life Teen, it responds to the new evangelization and empowers youth with the timeless truths of our Catholic faith by providing opportunities for sacramental encounters, discipleship, and community among peers. Life Teen and Edge are both a Eucharist – centered movement, within the Roman Catholic Church, that have the Blessed Mother as their intercessor and guide, and together they push the youth and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
Dumb Ox Ministries / Theology of the Body
Our Lady of Mercy EDGE Program invites all Middle School families to attend our EDGE 1 Night-Mission. Brian Butler and Greg Boudreaux of Dumb Ox Ministries will be with us to present St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. There will be two simultaneous presentations: one for your middle schooler and one for you! Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to learn more about what Theology of the Body is, and how you can be proactive in helping your child learn how to love authentically and live in freedom! Our 1 Night-Mission will begin at 5:30 with an optional Jambalaya dinner in the PAC. Our parent and middle school session will begin at 6:00 pm.
