St. Matthew’s EDGE Ministry is committed to providing a spiritual voice and guidance to our middle school youth through fellowship, service, catechesis and prayer.

Middle School Xtreme EDGE Nights    
These nights combine the spiritual and the social, allowing the middle school “tween” to explore their role in our Catholic faith.
SO....Just what is Xtreme Edge?
It’s a guide to surviving and enjoying middle school. It’s a place to hang with your friends, make new friends and discover the best friend you’ll ever have.
It's Xtreme FUN...Xtreme FAITH...Xtreme FRIENDS! If you are in 6th, 7th or 8th grade...Xtreme Edge is waiting for you!

Friday nights, once a month; themes and activities vary.
