Welcome to St. Patrick Catholic Church Youth Ministry!

 

We are a Life Teen parish who strives to empower young people to live as disciples of Christ, draw them to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community, and foster their total personal and spiritual growth.  Edge is a program for our 6th and 7th graders. We meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 in Fitzpatrick Hall.
 
Each night follows the format of Gather (prayer, introductions, and a fun activity that relates to the night), Proclaim (the teaching portion of the night), Break (during this time we break into small groups for discussion) and Send (the teens are gathered back into a large group for a recap of the night, closing prayer and any other closing comments). Did you notice how this follow the format of our Mass? At Mass the people gather, we proclaim the word, we break bread and send the people forth.
