MIDDLE SCHOOL

 Middle school is a transitional time and opportunity for these students to come to know Christ in the Eucharist, to make awesome friends, and to prepare them for the challenges of high school.

 

EDGE provides a place where tweens can meet with fellow tweens to grow

  • in fellowship
  • in worship
  • in relationship with Christ in the Sacraments and in Scripture
  • in an understanding of His love for Them!

Mission Statement

"Providing Families with the Tools to Lead Catholic Lives!"

Our Faith Formation classes are designed to offer students insights into their own faith life, to show them that being Catholic is a full time commitment, and to help them live out Christian values in their everyday lives. As Catholics, we baptized our children into a faith-filled community and made a solemn promise to raise them in the Catholic Church. It is the responsibility of the parents to see that their children, not only attend weekly Mass, but that they also receive an education in the Catholic Faith. However, Faith Formation goes beyond those two requirements. Faith Formation is an intentional action that is integrated into the life of a family to include development of the whole person.

The EDGE is a Catholic Centered Youth Ministry and Catechesis aimed at young adolescents.  It is designed to meet their Educational, Spiritual, Emotional, and Social Needs, Our program content is derived from the basic guidelines as set forth by the Archdiocese of San Antonio.  We have a three year rotating curriculum based on the four pillars of the Catechism: The Creed, Christian Living, Prayer and Sacraments.  All to help build a foundation of faith for our young people in time when so many changes take place for them personally.

As part of the St. Mark Mission Statement "To Spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to all God's People by Word and Action," Middle School Youth are encouraged to bring their friends.  They are encouraged to commit to the scheduled classes, take part in their small groups, and come with a healthy attitude, and open heart.

To that end the Middle School program offers many and varied ways for your youth to continue their Faith Formation.

Provide a positive atmosphere where our youth become increasingly aware of God's love through instruction and experiences.
Have a safe place for the youth to discuss his or her Faith questions
Foster a desire to respond to God's love by sharing their gifts through service
Give the youth role models of practicing Catholic adults to share their wisdom
Encourage and support all youth to make conscious life choices on the basis of Gospel values
