What is Edge?

Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. Edge resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth. Edge resources make it easier for youth ministers to plan out their semesters of Edge Night, retreats, and to train a team of adults, the Core Team, to assist them in the ministry. The resources present Catholic teaching in a way that young people can understand.


Beginning this fall in 2022, we will be blending Edge programming with our Purpose programming for our middle school students...

What is Purpose?

Purpose is a transformative approach to confirmation. It combines impactful curriculum with powerful digital tools to engage teens and parents. Purpose is a whole new approach to sacramental preparation.


The Purpose curriculum is 24 sessions with a heavy focus on evangelizing young people and accompanying them as they become disciples. The curriculum addresses three big questions, "Why believe in God?", "Why trust Jesus?" and "Why be a part of the Church?" These questions are supplemented with the Foundations book series, which allow teens to dive more deeply into each. Even better - the curriculum is constantly being updated to meet young people where they are and address real-world challenges they face every day.
