OLV Edge Fall 2018EDGE

Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program for 6-8th graders at OLV Parish. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. 

Edge meets in the MS Youth Room in the Parish Center from 6 pm to 8 pm. Dinner will be provided. Parent Support is needed.

 Kathleen Keelin

We are thrilled to welcome Kathleen Keelin as the new Middle School Youth Minister. She worked at OLV School for 13 years and is currently the school counselor at Calera Elementary School. During her time at OLV, she was an 8th grade homeroom teacher for five years which she absolutely loved. She also worked as a coach for Science Olympiad team for many years, working with 5th-8th graders as they planned, built and competed.

Kathleen is a Licensed Professional Counselor who graduated from Binghamton University with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and from the University of Montevallo with a Masters of Education degree in Counseling. Born and raised in New York, she and her husband, Chris, relocated with their four children to Hoover twenty years ago. Kathleen is very excited to be working with middle schoolers again! She said, “however, there are a lot of them and she would welcome anyone who wishes to volunteer with our group.”
