Youth Group for Grades 6-8
Edge is a fun, welcoming community. Teens in Grades 6-8 come together to form Christ-centered friendships, get answers to their questions about faith, and experience the love of God. Edge helps us grow as the people God created us to be.

Youth Ministry for Grades 9-12
We are currently forming Connect Groups!
Teens can form a group with their friends and pick a day/time to meet at the Parish Center at St. Matthew Church or at the CCD Center at St. Gregory Church.
Connect Groups will provide our teens with an opportunity to grow in faith with their friends and remain connected with God and each other. During Connect groups, teens will grow as disciples through reading Scripture, praying together, asking questions and having conversations about God, and being part of a Catholic community. Each Connect Group can choose which topics/aspects of faith they would like to grow in.
Contact Amanda, our Youth Minister, at Youthministry@stmatthewrcc.com to learn more about being part of a Connect Group!
