Middle School Ministry
(grades 5, 6, 7, 8)
In many respects middle schoolers are on the edge because so much is going on in their lives. It can be a very stressful and difficult time for them and parents, too!
As a Catholic community, we at St. Charles want to give our middle school youth the edge they need in life: Jesus, the Word, the Eucharist, and the Church!
Edge groups build houses with Legos before a lesson about Matthew 8:5-13 and the new wording of the prayer before Communion: "Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed."
