Youth Ministry

A creative and experiential approach

Edge at Holy Spirit Parish is a Catholic youth ministry program for middle school youth in grades 6-8. It is designed to meet the catechetical, educational, spiritual, emotional and social needs of young adolescents.

Edge Nights are scheduled every other Wednesday from 7:00-8:30 p.m. beginning in the Fall and ending in the Spring. Some weeks may vary due to holidays and school breaks.

We invite all youth and their families to attend the 6 p.m. contemporary music Mass every Sunday. We also strongly encourage the youth to get involved as a liturgical minister. Middle Schoolers can sign up to be altar servers and ushers.

For more information, contact Row David at 408-997-5106 or rdavid@dsj.org.

Free-Throw Competition

On Wednesday, January 24th we will have our annual Free-Throw Competition. Each year, partnered with the Knights of Columbus, we host a free-throw competition for middle school youth. This is an official event and an entry form is required to participate in the competition. Youth not wanting to compete may still come and support their peers. Please contact Row at rdavid@dsj.org for more information.
