Life on the Edge

Register for this class ($0)

Life on the Edge is our bi-monthly class for 6-8th graders.


Our content is on a 3 year cycle:

Year A (Current) Year B Year C
Morality The Person of Jesus The Creed
Social Justice The Church Scripture & Sacraments

At the beginning of the year, each student is assigned a small group that they will be a part of for the year. The class meets as a large group in the social hall to start each night, then, after an activity and a talk, breaks into small groups to discuss the topic of the evening. Each night also incorporates a prayer experience, to help students . We usually send out a summary to parents afterward, so you can stay in touch with what your student has learned about!

Make up work for missed classes.
