Your Ministry – EDGE

EDGE Youth Ministry – where youth lead youth TO THE HEIGHTS

All grade 6, 7 and 8 students are invited to join St. Joseph’s EDGE Youth Ministry in Scarborough.

EDGE promotes a sense of belonging within the Body of Christ as a Catholic Christian through challenges, activities and prayer. It fosters community by creating a fun, safe, in-person environment as the means to discover some of the riches of the Catholic Faith.

youth to the heights  e

It’s important that EDGE participants (aka EDGErs) understand that the Body of Christ is not limited to St Joseph’s EDGE youth ministry. Their family and all parishioners are also part of the Body of Christ.

With that perspective, we participate in corporal Works of Mercy (WoM) with other St Joseph ministries like the Knights of Columbus (Out-of-the-Cold), the St Vincent de Paul Society (Bundle-Up Weekend), the CWL (collect pop tabs, egg cartons, yarn, milk bags and material for quilts). We also join the congregation for devotionals such as Stations of the Cross, First Friday Mass and the Divine Mercy Novena. We even go beyond our parish to join youth from the Archdiocese at the Lift Jesus Higher Rally and at EDGE Camp.
