Revolutionary Love: Edge Middle School Retreat

This retreat is designed for 6th, 7th and 8th graders. There are five main sessions, following the same format as a typical Edge session: Gather, Proclaim, Break and Send. In addition to the five main sessions, the retreat weekend is filled with prayer, games, and plenty of time for relational ministry between Core members and the middle school youth. For many middle school youth, this may be their first time away from home. Encourage Core members to create a welcoming and friendly environment for them. At the same time, challenge the middle schoolers to take their Catholic faith to the next level during this weekend.

The middle school youth will discover the need for Christ in their lives and increase their desire to grow closer to him, and recognize the greatness of God and see how He wants them to reflect that greatness to the world.The middle school youth will come to understand that Jesus reveals Himself in many different ways. They will be challenged to open their eyes to see His presence in their lives starting significantly when they were Baptized, and how they are called to continue to live out that Sacrament. There are also boys and girls sessions focusing on sin and Reconciliation. The retreat ends with the youth challenged to look at their faith in a new way and to change the world with the way that they love.
