Building Strong Catholic Families

We all know the family that is on fire for a certain sports team. Or
maybe you are that family. They have the hats, jerseys, bumper stickers, signed pictures in the home, and they never
miss a game. They are on fire for a team. In gospel Jesus wants us to be on FIRE for HIM. Jesus wants us to burn for
HIM even more than we do for earthly things. Why? Because true happiness is found in Jesus. How can you and your
family stoke the fire of faith so that you will BURN with love and devotion for Jesus Christ?

2022-2023 Faith Formation Year
Program Spotlight: EDGE (6th-7th)

EDGE is a Catholic Middle School youth ministry program. It provides a safe and fun place for youth to find solid Catholic
community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and most importantly to experience Jesus in a profound and
personal way. Now more than ever middle school youth need the truth and love of Jesus Christ to guide their lives and
they need the faith presented in a way that makes sense to them and is relevant to their lives.
EDGE will meet Monday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:45pm at St Francis, the same time as confirmation. The hope is that
the transition from EDGE to Confirmation will be a seamless one as they will already have developed the routine of the
Monday schedule. It also gives more time for the students to form friendships and a faith community among themselves
that will make these four years that much more meaningful and engaging. Furthermore, the hope is that it will be these
friendships and faith community that will help keep them engaged in their journey of faith post confirmation.
