Youth Ministry Program Life Teen (HS) and Edge (Middle School)

Welcome to St. Thomas Life Teen and Edge!  

LifeTeen is a national high school youth ministry program that offers true Catholic catechesis and spirituality, service, and social opportunities.
Our high school and middle school youth groups meet on every Wednesday nights from 7:00pm-8:30pm during the school year.  
My high schooler goes to Catholic school.  Why should they come to Life Teen or Edge?
Investing in Catholic schooling is a big commitment and provides teens with incredible intellectual formation in the teachings of the Catholic faith.  At Life Teen, we believe that the key to engaging a teen in their faith is to move them beyond knowing things about God to actually knowing God.  
The intellectual formation that your teen has received at school will be a great foundation to their experience at Life Teen where we build community, tackle challenging issues in the life of a Catholic Teen, and help them discover God's great love and respond with a life of discipleship 
Life Teen and Edge  lead teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.
