What is EDGE?

EDGE is OLMC’s youth ministry program for 7th and 8th grade students. Each EDGE night includes fellowship, dynamic teaching, small group discussion and activities, and prayer. The program offers junior high youth the opportunity to grow as mature Christian disciples and be authentic witnesses to God’s love and truth in the world.

EDGE follows the “Ecclesial Method,” incorporating the Gather, Proclaim, Break, and Send format:

- Gather: community-building

- Proclaim: dynamic presentations that connect

                   our faith to our daily lives

- Break: small group sessions that have life

              application discussions and do theme

              based activities

- Send: we are sent forth with the challenge to

              live the Gospel

The ecclesial method of youth ministry offers a hands-on approach to learning the faith, and helps youth integrate the Catholic faith into their daily lives.

Letter from the EDGE Director


Dear 7th and 8th graders,

Welcome to Our Lady of Mount Carmel's junior high youth ministry!

Jesus Christ said, “I came that they might have life and have it to the full” (Jn 10:10). And when Jesus says something, he means it!

Why settle for less than fullness of life?  

OLMC EDGE is a place where you can learn about this fullness of life that Jesus promises through dynamic teachings, meaningful small group discussion and activities, and even games and fellowship.

See you there!
