Grades 6-8

+ Wednesday Edge

EDGE is a Catholic middle school youth discipleship program. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, get answers to their questions about faith, and most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. EDGE resources speak to the spiritual, relational, cognitive, psychological, and physical maturation of middle school youth.

At St. Therese we are thrilled to be using EDGE resources to lead middle school youth to develop a deeper relationship with Christ. We hope your teen will join us to encounter an environment of prayer, fellowship, and openness where teens feel safe to express their thoughts and ideas about their faith.

6th-8th graders, you are welcome to join us at EDGE on Wednesday from 4:30 PM-5:45 PM or 6:30 PM-7:45 PM.  Don't forget to register for EDGE. We can't wait to see you!

+ Retreats

EDGE students will have the opportunity on October 4, 2017 to attend a NET Retreat led by NET missionaries living in St. Paul.  NET Ministries challenges young Catholics to love Christ and embrace the life of the Church. The retreat runs from 5PM-8PM and dinner is included. NET is a gift to the Catholic Church and we cannot wait for this upcoming retreat. 

Middle School D-Week is a three-day retreat for Catholic teens who have completed grades 6-8, designed to ignite (or re-ignite) their Catholic faith. Young people there experience the love, mercy, and power of God. Many share that D-Week has awakened or re-energized their relationship with Jesus Christ. Others speak of their faith being “set afire” through the Holy Spirit. And still others share how Christ came alive for them in Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Adoration. Discipleship Week is an awesome combination of great music, excellent talks, praise and worship, Mass & Reconciliation, entertainment, fun, and fellowship! Originating in St. Paul, D-Week has grown from being just one weekend a summer in Minnesota to now having multiple locations throughout the United States.
