Middle School Youth Ministry

Branching Out is the Middle School Youth Ministry program at St. John Neumann parish. Branching Out aims to provide a number of opportunities for 6th, 7th, and 8th Graders to engage in service-oriented, social, and faith growing experiences to complement the Rooted program. As we become more ROOTED in our faith, we are called to BRANCH OUT as Christ’s hands in the world around us.

Please contact Angela Davis (adavis@saintjn.org) if you have any questions.

Branching Out T-Shirts

Branching Out t-shirts are on sale for $10. At most off-site Branching Out events, all participants will be required to wear a Branching Out t-shirt to assist with better supervision and accountability. Participants in those events may purchase one to own or may choose to borrow one for the event. Shirts can be purchased during Rooted sessions or any other time that staff is available in the Faith Formation Office.
