Purpose of EDGE

The purpose of the St. Stephen EDGE Middle School Ministry Program is to provide opportunities for our 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students to make lasting friendships of faith as part of the St. Stephen parish community.

Our Middle School Youth Ministry Program accomplishes this by providing service opportunities and fun social activities for our 6th- 8th-grade students. Parents are invited to be a part of the fun as chaperones for all activities and drivers when the fun takes us off-campus. All off-campus activities require a permission form. All adults helping with middle school activities will need a current background check on file with the St. Stephen office.

Urban Plunge

Urban Plunge; each year during either spring break or fall break both Edge and Life Teen together participate in a day long Urban Plunge experiencing the 7 Corporal Works of Mercy in one day in Nashville. Students take the bus from Hermitage to Downtown Nashville to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned and bury the dead. Our Urban Plunge takes us a prison for youth, a clothing closet, encounters with persons experiencing homelessness in Nashville at the Room in the Inn main campus as well as in public locations. We visit Calvary Cemetery to learn about this historic Catholic site in Nashville and to pray for the dead. We end our day at McKendree Health Care Center to visit the men and women who live in the memory unit.

Hidden Lake Summer Camp

Hidden Lake Summer Camp; each summer in late June/early July we take students entering the 6th, 7th and 8th grade to Life Teen’s middle school camp – Hidden Lake in Dahlonega, GA.
