Welcome to St. Edward's 6th-8th Grade

Faith Formation

Sue Carbone, 6 - 10th Grade Coordinator

Our 6th and 7th-grade programs will take a unique approach to reading the bible. The students will share their own observations of specific Bible passages. The 8th-grade program will be a look back and review in preparation for the students to continue their journey to confirmation. 

Parental assistance is needed to make these programs a success. Please consider giving time to help during your child’s class time. You will not have to commit to the whole year and you will not be asked to teach.

This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.

John 15:12


“Love is shown by little things, by attention to small daily signs which make us feel at home. Faith grows when it is lived and shaped by love. That is why our families, our homes, are true domestic churches. They are the right place for faith to become life, and life to grow in faith.”

Pope Francis
