7th Grade Faith Formation

Below, you’ll find this year’s 7th grade class schedules:


7th Grade Seaside Edge: Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 PM

What is the Seaside Edge Program? Seaside Edge is Hingham’s own Catholic middle school youth ministry program. 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. Seaside Edge resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth. The resources present Catholic teaching in a way that young people can understand.

Brief Description: Father Matthew Norwood will run the 7th Grade Edge program on Thursdays from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM. Middle school students are invited to come to the Life Teen Mass at 5:30 PM. For more information about the program, schedules and registration, please follow the links below.

Father Matt Norwood

7th Grade Seaside Edge Coordinator

My name is Fr. Matt Norwood, and I have been assigned as the Parochial Vicar at Resurrection
and St. Paul’s since August 2020. I was ordained a priest of Jesus Christ on August 1, 2020 and I
am really happy to be in Hingham for my first assignment. I grew up in Wellesley, MA, attending public schools there through high school. I have an older sister who currently lives in Los Angeles, and my parents are still residing in my childhood home in Wellesley. After high school, I attended George Washington University in Washington, DC for a year before I entered college seminary. I transferred to the Catholic University of America, where I studied from 2013-2016 while I was in formation for the priesthood. In 2016, I returned home to Boston and continued my studies at Saint John’s Seminary in Brighton. As a transitional deacon, I served at St. Columbkille Parish in Brighton from 2019-2020.
The Lord has clearly put His seal on Seaside LifeTeen, and I am so excited to be a part of it. I
really look forward to getting to know many of you. Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can
be of help to you in any way – we are following Jesus and serving Him together. I am praying
daily for fruit to continue to be borne in Hingham that will lead many souls to encounter Jesus
Christ and give themselves completely to Him.
