Edge

Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. Edge resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth. Edge answers the needs of this age group in a catechetical, fun, and relevant way and provides a foundation for youth to continue onto Life Teen.

At Our Lady of Sorrows (OLOS), we use this program and also branch out and do so much more. We are adding events to build strong relationships with our neighboring parishes. Earlier this year we had laser tag and help make food for the homeless in our community. We had a very successful Thanksgiving dinner for seniors in our community that was put on by both the Edge and Lifeteen groups. In December the Edge group also paired up with the Lifeteen program to get gifts for the Seniors at Regency in North Bend. The Edge group is also looking forward to participating in the Crop Walk as well. The Edge program is still new to OLOS and developing, we have a busy schedule already being planned for next year with numerous events planned with our fellow parishes.

Our Edge group meets downstairs after the Sunday 11:00 A.M. mass and normally meets until 1:30 P.M. Of course there is always time to grab snack beforehand at the OLOS coffee hour.

This program would not be possible if it was not for the help of our CORE members. These are dedicated people who take time to help share their faith with the middle schoolers in small groups. Core members really make an important difference in helping build up each other’s faith.

We are always looking for new Core members, everyone has a special talent and can change someone’s life with that talent

If you’re interested in being a CORE member please contact Andrew Jarboe.

Lifeteen

Lifeteen is a high school based Catholic group, with the Eucharist being at the center. This group is designed for high school teens to have a place where they can learn and discuss their faith, grow together spiritually and help the community, while growing closer to Christ. The Lifeteen group participates in activities with neighboring parishes which includes retreats, community based outreach, and social activities. The Lifeteen group is designed to go over the questions about the Catholic faith that are relevant to high school teens in an environment that is safe and fun. Each year the Lifeteen participates in the Senior Thanksgiving Dinner and Stockings of Joy Christmas outreach to senior citizens. This year the Lifeteen group started sponsoring the Important Seahawks games (Playoffs) after the 11:00 AM Mass and hope to evolve this event. We are currently trying to add many activities with other parishes to build up community friendships.

Lifeteen Currently meets from 1:30-3:00 PM on Sundays in the social hall.

Lifeteen is always looking for CORE team members. These members are adults who like to share their faith with the high school teens and also share life experiences. Everyone has a special gift that can be shared with the high school teens. If you feel called to share your faith with the high school teens please email me andrew@olos.org

Lifeteen has a great website with more information.
