Welcome to St. Jane Frances de Chantal Church… please join us!
After each of the three times Jesus asked Peter to profess his love, Jesus said, “Feed my lambs… Tend my sheep… Feed my sheep.” Jesus said so much more than the words, “I forgive you.” Jesus gave Peter a ministry. He trusted him again with responsibility, leadership, and care of the Church. And then he said again, the very first words Peter ever heard him say to him, “Follow me.”
If Jesus can forgive Peter for his failures and restore him to great usefulness, both to his fellow man and to God, why can’t he do the same for us? Our risen Lord knows about your past, but you still have a future with him. He rose from the grave to tell us that he still loves us and still has a place of service for each and every one of us. And maybe, like Peter and all his disciples from so very long ago, you will recognize him, hear his voice, and accept his forgiveness. All it takes is your “yes” to accept your ministry and follow him.

Roman Missal 3rd Edition
(Nov. 2011) Over forty years have passed since 1969 when the first translation of the Mass into English was first issued. Since that time, our ability to understand, articulate, and translate the words we use during Mass has improved, and a few minor, but noticeable, changes to the prayers used during Mass have recently been implemented. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and Life Teen have prepared a variety of videos which we have organized on our web site to help you to easily find them and watch at your convenience.

Saint Jane Frances School designated as one of seven STEM schools in the Archdiocese
(Jan. 28, 2011) The Archdiocese of Baltimore announced Jan. 28, 2011 that it will offer Science, Technology, Engineering and Math programs in seven of its elementary schools, including Saint Jane Frances School. The Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Department of Catholic Schools developed a criteria and a process for designating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) schools, and Pasadena’s St. Jane Frances de Chantal School was one of the first to meet the criteria.
STEM schools will have continuous professional development for teachers, integrated use of computer technology and technology teaching tools, a successful advanced math track, data-driven decision-making, the presence of a science lab, and partnerships with businesses and/or universities focused on one or more STEM disciplines. St. Jane Frances de Chantal and St. Joan of Arc recently received federal grants to fund STEM-related professional development. Congratulations to all of the teachers, students, and administrators who've worked so hard to make sure that our school offers the best education available. Read more about it in the Catholic Review.
