Immacolata Parish offers EDGE Jr. High Youth Ministry for 6th-8th grade! The middle schoolers meet every Friday evening from 6:30-8pm in the Youth Room under of the rectory. Parents/Guardians please check in your child by coming down the stairs on the right side of the building and in red door.

We begin the night with some snacks and socializing/ icebreakers! Every week the activities and EDGE Nights themes vary. It is an awesome atmosphere for the teens to grow closer to Christ while having fun with their friends. All are welcome!

Calendar of up coming events:

This week will begin a new semester for our Middle School EDGE program.

 

WIRES AND ROBOTICS: Questions about the Human Person

Who am I? Why am I here? What is the purpose of my life? What does it mean to be human?

 

These very questions are pivotal to our identity and how we understand both who we are and our dignity and worth. Middle school youth are beginning to explore who they are and who they want to be, and they may be wondering why they even exist. Developmentally, finding their identity is one of the biggest tasks for this age group. This Semester is designed to our help middle school youth tackle the big questions about what it means to be human and what God has revealed to us about our humanity. It will help the youth see the origin, destiny, and dignity of every human being, so they can form their identity on the foundation of truth and discover who God created them to be.

THE GREAT IDEA: Why Am I Here?

STEUBENVILLE WEEK 1:

“Restore us, O God of Hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved.” - Psalm 80:3

 

WHAT IS STEUBENVILLE

Steubenville STL Mid-America is a high-energy youth conference in which teens are invited to encounter Jesus Christ through dynamic speakers, engaging music, the Sacraments, small group discussions, and fellowship with other teens. Our conferences are an outreach of Franciscan University in partnership with the St. Louis Archdiocesan Office of Youth Ministry. Two conferences are held every year in July and take place on the campus of Missouri State University in Springfield, MO.

 

We are excited to say that we will be moving forward with Steubenville's STL mid-america conferences capped at 1700 participants. For those of you who have joined us in the past, this year's conference will look different, but the Lord is still offering us the same invitation to encounter Him in community. The Lord is faithful and we thank you.

 

In the midst of our broken and chaotic world, Jesus wants to restore us to the glory for which he created us. This summer, join hundreds of Catholic teens (plus thousands of others who will be attending Steubenville Conferences  across North America) to experience a weekend that you will remember for the rest of your life!

All rising freshmen in high school through rising freshmen in college are invited to attend this retreat with our group.
