Jr. High Program: Edge
EDGE is St. Bartholomew’s junior high religious education program.   This program has a youth group style approach to learning, instead of a traditional class room style.  Edge is a Life Teen program based on the catechetical and spiritual needs of junior high aged teens.  Please check out the Edge website for more information www.edge.org.
EDGE meets Sunday evenings in the lower level of the Church from 6 to 7pm.   We have a dedicated group of adults and high school teens who make up EDGE Core, the facilitators for EDGE. 
Throughout the year we will explore these six areas of Catholicism; Scripture, Creed, Church, Social Justice, Prayer and Sacraments.   We intend to create a comfortable and safe learning environment.  Cost for EDGE is $50.00.  There are 15 scheduled EDGE nights, one service project, and we will also be adding Pacer games, Laser tag, and other social nights outside of this schedule.  Check your email for these events throughout the year.

Junior High youth ministry focuses on creating a strong basis for church community and spiritual growth before teens reach their high school years.   Our prayer is that each family is able to help their teen attend as many EDGE nights as possible. 
We hope you feel welcome and are excited about EDGE and the opportunities it will present for your teen in the life of the Church.
