NEW THIS YEAR: EDGE!
This year YG will be structured around a ministry program called "Edge" by LifeTeen. Edge is a program tailored to youth in grades 6, 7, 8. Through Edge we will explore the Catechism of the Catholic Church, taking up different sections of the Catechism every semester. You can find out more about the Edge program at www.lifeteen.com/edge-ministry. (Many thanks to the Knights of Columbus whose generous donation made funding of the program possible!)
Life Teen is a youth ministry movement that offers various programs and resources for strengthening youth in their Catholic identity and calling them closer to Jesus. You can find out more about them on their webpage www.lifeteen.com/about.
