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, 6th, 7th, and 8th 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.


We invite you to share your gifts as a volunteer in our Rooted Middle School program. There are many different ways to be involved. Please see the information below. If you have any questions about becoming a Rooted volunteer, email Angela at adavis@saintjn.org. CLICK BELOW TO SIGN UP!

Rooted in Service

The Rooted program works to provide 40,000 meals to the hungry each year, and we need your support! Rooted and Branching Out also engage in other service efforts throughout the year, such as making blankets for the elderly, baking cookies for Kairos (SJN’s prison ministry), and other projects that answer our call to be Christ’s hands in the world.
