High School Youth participate in LIFE Teen.
As a faith community, the teens grow in understanding of what it means to be young and Catholic. The teens are affirmed, educated, and challenged to live the Gospel. Each LIFE Night ends with Adoration and sets forth the challenge to become the Word made Flesh.
|Middle School youth participate in EDGE ministries which is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adolescents. Edge is a middle school extension of LIFE Teen that ends each night in Adoration.
|Through a series of sessions based on creative and experiential catechetical methods, young people are drawn into a deeper faith that will transform their hearts and change their life. Eligible youth need to be active in their parish for at least a year prior to preparation, demonstrated especially by regular Mass attendance and weekly participation in a faith formation program.

For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
