Branching Out Week 2021

From Monday, July 12 to Friday, July 16, St. John Neumann’s Faith Formation Department hosted the first-ever “Branching Out Week” for our middle-school faith formation students. The week was a combination of day-camp and work-camp. Students had a lot of fun, performed many service projects for the parish, and got more in touch with their Catholic faith. Highlights of the week included picking over 400 pounds of potatoes to benefit local shelters and food pantries, and visiting the National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg, Maryland. On Friday, July 16, the students enjoyed a cook
-out lunch, whipped up by Father Joe Brennan, Pastor, and Nelson Alvarez our Head of Facilities—both talented grill masters! To learn more about Branching Out Week, contact Angela Davis in our Faith Formation Office at
