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 compliment the Rooted program.  As we become more ROOTED in our faith, we are called to BRANCH OUT as Christs hands in the world around us.

Check out our video from our recent event, Cookie Baking for Kairos.  35 Middle Schoolers (6th/7th/8th Graders) worked together to create 43 posters and 44 dozen cookies to be donated to an upcoming Kairos prison retreat.  Thanks for all your hard work!
