Youth Of St. Francis-Youfra


Franciscan Youth is where members between the ages of 14 and 30 – meeting in fraternity – embrace a true community spirit and develop a sense of belonging. With a community spirit, a sense of belonging and the continual support of Secular Franciscan Order and Franciscan spiritual assistants, we grow in the human, Christian and Franciscan dimensions of our lives.

People Need The Lord. Please join them if you are interested to change the lives of others. We also welcome any kind of Support, donations and prayers to make a success of our good intentions.

As a family of St. Francis we are more happy to share with those who are in need. Your contribution will mean a lot to us. As you can see that we are all in tertiary institutions, many of us are not working and we are still depending on our parents. 

if you are interested please contact one of the Sisters to connect with us.
