Middle School Faith Formation

Rooted is the Middle School Faith Formation program at St. John Neumann parish. Rooted takes a different approach to Faith Formation and consists of a series of sessions which follow a retreat model focused on providing an engaging and meaningful experience. The Rooted year consists of seven two-and-a-half-hour sessions and two longer “retreat” days. Through these sessions, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders participate in learning, fellowship, service, prayer, and fun; with a focus on becoming more ROOTED in their Catholic faith.

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