"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Edge serves the 7th and 8th grade youth of our parish. It has been a part of the St. Vincent's youth ministry program since 2011. Youth from various area middle schools, the parish junior high, and homeschooled students make up the Edge community. For more information, please see the "About Edge" page.
All youth ministry at St. Vincent's flows from and points directly to the Eucharist, which is the source and summit of our faith. Youth Ministry is comprised of the 7th and 8th grade Edge program and the 9-12th grade Lifeteen program [Click either logo for more info]. These aren't so much programs, as they are families: sub-families of our greater parish family and even of our even greater universal Catholic family.
If you have a young person in the 7th or 8th grade, he/she is invited and welcome to join our Edge family! For more information, please see the above tabs. We hope to see you soon!
For over 20 years St. Vincent's Life Teen has been leading high school aged teens closer to Jesus Christ through His Church. Though LT has a long history at our parish, its Youth Ministers and Core Team members habitually rely on the freshness of the Holy Spirit to draw teens ever more deeply into a relationship with Jesus Christ, through prayer, the Sacraments, works of mercy, and in challenging them to evangelize others. God has truly blessed us with so many former Life Teen participants who later in life courageously embraced their respective vocations:
6 diocesan priests
10 seminarians currently in formation
5 consecrated religious
countless faithful married couples
Ultimately this ministry shares in the universal mission of the Church, that of making saints, and in the particular mission of St. Vincent's, that of making our kids saints!
