Middle School

Beloved, I pray that in every way you may prosper and enjoy good health, as your soul also prospers

(3 John 1:2)

EDGE (Middle School Ministry) at St. Michael’s provides year-round opportunities for youth engagement in the Parish. This program aims to lead teens (6th-8th grade) closer to Christ through personal encounters.

Faith Formation

Middle School Faith Formation reinforces K-5 catechesis and begins the conversation on faith ownership. Teens will engage in games, talks, small groups and varied prayer experiences.
