 Youth Ministry is a fun and energized experience for teens to grow in their faith among their peers and in the wider faith community.  Our high school youth ministry is called Teens Gathered In Faith (T.G.I.F.).  It involves a variety of events including service projects, community building, field trips, conferences, Lock-Ins, involvement in worship, vicariate events, and more.  Our weekly youth events involve games, activities, community building, small group sharing and prayer, all focusing on topics relevant to teens, and their everyday lives.  All high school teens (9th - 12th grade) are invited to any of T.G.I.F.'s events, but some do require advance sign up at the parish office or by contacting Ben Klassen, our Youth Ministry Coordinator.

Youth Ministry is a shared program with St. Ephrem, our parish cluster partner, conducted through St. Jane Frances de Chantal.

High School Teen Leadership Team
This leadership team meets about once a month to plan and vision for youth ministry at St. Jane Frances de Chantal.  They help focus the direction of youth ministry through idea-sharing, feedback, and insight.  All high school teens interested in joining this team should contact the Youth Ministry Coordinator.
