Student Leadership Team

Student Leadership Team

What is the Student Leadership Team?

  • An opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to grow in discipleship and leadership, through service to our parish community. Members of the team will participate in monthly formation meetings, and serve in different helping roles with Edge middle school youth group, Edge dinners, youth events, and youth fundraisers.

Do I need to be Confirmed to participate in the Student Leadership Team?

  • No – this opportunity is open to all high school juniors and seniors, confirmed or not! We do ask student leaders to seek to live a Catholic lifestyle to the full through participating in weekly Mass, frequent Confession, daily prayer, and upholding to and seeking to understand the teachings of the Catholic Church.

What is the time commitment for this opportunity?

  • We ask student leaders to commit to our monthly formation meetings and weekly Edge nights. There will be other events and opportunities to help with as leaders are available, but we ask for a minimum of the formation meetings and Edge nights.

 What are the benefits to serving as a student leader?

  • Good community of friends and support system, grow deeper in your own faith, learn more about sharing the faith, learn leadership skills, have opportunities to practice leadership skills, become a role model to younger youth, participate once again in the Edge film festival, service hours towards Confirmation, grow in confidence through helping others, and have a chance to share the love of Christ with others!
