“He went down with them and came to Nazareth,

and was obedient to them;

and his mother kept all these things in her heart.

And Jesus advanced in wisdom and age and favor before God and man.”


— Luke 2:51–52

Religious education for those in middle school (grades 6–8) takes place on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Saint Benedict School, and runs from October through May.


The program, called “Edge,” is a dynamic form of youth ministry that combines education and fun activities.


The parish assesses a fee to cover the cost of religious education: $40 for the first and second child, with a maximum of $90 per family.
