Teens Growing in Faith (TGIF)

This is a ministry for the high school teens of the parish.  It has a dual purpose: providing religious education to our teens and, through small group sharing, fostering a sense of belonging to the parish community. Both public and parochial high school students are welcome to be members of TGIF.

For more information, please contact Trish Ladner at TGIF@ijpparish.org

Save The Date:
TGIF Graduates Mass will be held on Sunday, June 6th at the 11:00 am Mass to celebrate all our High School Seniors as well as to welcome our newly confirmed 8th graders. More details to follow in the coming weeks.


Dear IJP Teens and parents,

Hi, I am Trisha Ladner and I am the Coordinator of Youth Ministry at Infant Jesus of Prague.

The goal of TGIF (Teens Growing in Faith) is to help you find ways to stay involved, active and connected to IJP parish as well as the wider community.  IJP TGIF will offer you a place where you will have the opportunity to grow spiritually, serve others, actively participate in your parish and of course, have some fun. There will be many great opportunities for you to get involved, perhaps even serving in a leadership role. 

The TGIF, Teens Growing in Faith leadership team and I would like to invite you to our first Teen Mass of the new year.

The Mass will be Sunday, October 18th at 11:00 am (note new date) Please register for the Mass on the parish website.  (I have enclosed the link)


Starting in November, our Teen Masses will occur on the second Sunday of the month at 11:00 am. We will not be able to gather after Mass for lunch, at this time, but the Teen Leadership group and I will be exploring opportunities for TGIF as we navigate through this pandemic. Details will be coming soon.

I would like to invite any of you to become involved in our Teen Masses either as a cantor, an EM or a lector. If any of these roles interest you, please let me know and I will be able to provide training for you. Please email me at tgif@ijpparish.org.

TGIF Leadership Team and 
Mrs. Trisha Ladner Youth Ministry Coordinator
