Edge 1st Semester Curriculumn
Transformation takes the youth deep into the mystery and wonder of the Sacraments of Initiation.
The youth will see the transformative power of the graces of these sacraments and how they build
the foundation of their faith and give them strength and nourishment for the journey of their lives.
Not only will they learn about the liturgical celebration of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation,
and the Eucharist, but they will also see the rich Scriptural history of these sacraments.
Transformation dives into the Church’s teachings on the Sacraments of Initiation in the Catechism
of the Catholic Church. To ensure that middle school youth get the fullness of the deposit of
faith in a systematic manner, Life Teen has created an Edge Framework. This framework outlines
the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church so that in three years the middle school youth will
cover and learn the basics of the Catholic Faith.
Transformation is the second of the nine Semester Planning Guides of the Edge Framework.
This Semester Planning Guide covers the Celebration of the Christian Mystery section of the
Catechism of the Catholic Church which dives into the sacraments and liturgy.
