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 2019/2020 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.

Rooted in Service

Like last year, Rooted will end with a retreat day which will include a service project of packing meals to feed 40,000 people. This takes a lot of effort and funding to make possible. We will be raising money for the food and shipping costs. It only cost $0.25 per meal, but the means we need to raise $10,000. There are many ways that you and your child can help. Here are just a few options:
  • Have your child complete extra chores at home and then donate the money they earned here: DONATE ONLINE
  • Have you child sign-up to speak at Mass or to be pass out flyers after Mass: SIGNUP HERE
  • Do some of your Christmas shopping through Boon Supply who will give us 40% towards our cause: BOON SHOPPING LINK
  • Check out our fundraising website for more information on this and other ways to help: WEBSITE LINK
