Middle School Ministry
(Grades 5, 6, 7, 8)
In many respects middle schoolers are on the edge because so much is going on in their lives. They are on the edge of transitioning out of childhood into adolescence. It can be a very stressful and difficult time for them and parents, too!
As a Catholic community, we at St. Charles want to give our middle school youth the edge they need in life: Jesus, the Word, the Eucharist, and the Church!
