Junior High (7th & 8th Grades)

What's this I hear about Middle School Youth Ministry?

This year at SVdP we are relaunching our Junior High Youth Ministry to give our 7th and 8th graders (we will add 6th grade at a later date) an opportunity to encounter Christ and live out their faith in ways outside of a classroom environment using Life Teen’s EDGE materials.  EDGE Nights will provides a safe, fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community through fellowship, games, and catechesis where they can ask questions about their faith and experience Jesus in a personal way.


We encourage students to attend the 5:00 pm Youth Mass, join us for Pizza and ABIDE on the 2nd Sunday of each month and on EDGE Nights which will generally be the last Sunday of the month from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. We will also participate in events in the Archdiocese and with other area Parishes as scheduled.


If you are interested in having your children participate in EDGE and haven’t yet e-mailed me, please e-mail nespors@svdpomaha.org with your name and your children’s name(s). Then, I will make sure that you are on our eVents email list to receive information about EDGE opportunities.


It is most helpful if you fill out this form and have your child bring it the first time they come to an EDGE Night and on the nights you come, please click here to let Mr. Steve know you are coming.


Upcoming Events:


Youth Serve
Sunday, July 23 - Tuesday, July 25


While it seems a way off, it is never too soon to start putting together our Youth Serve teams since we are limited to only 10 participants for July 23-25.

Youth Serve is a three-day, two-night service learning program designed for teams of adults and students entering 8th and 9th grades.  Youth Serve provides an opportunity to learn and dialogue together with others about the role of service and social justice in our daily lives as disciples of Christ.
