Our Church Safety Program
is designed to provide protection for you and your children during services
and religious education. It is unfortunate that we must take such steps,
but I think you will agree that the world has become a more dangerous place.
Just a reminder, Five (5) minutes after Mass begins,
all exterior doors will be locked with the exception of our front door and kitchen hall door.
Get to Mass on time and in addition to these measures, the door at the top of the steps
leading into the Religious Education wing will also be locked five (5) minutes after classes begin.
Get your children to class on time to avoid entrance through our other doors.
Looking For Volunteers
We are looking for Volunteers to form a Parking Lot Team.
At each Mass we need the minimum of two people who will have radio communications.
A short one hour training session will be required.
Volunteers may be men or women.
This is another aspect of our overall proactive approach to safety for our church and church members.
If you are interested, please contact Nikki at the church office 615-444-0524
or firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Wilson County continues to have homeless problem,
and local churches are planning once again to make a difference this winter.
Emergency Shelters at Wilson County Churches
December 1, 2016 - March 15, 2017
Wilson County churches are working together to help serve for 15 weeks this winter.
We are gearing up and preparing for the 4th season of Compassionate Hands Ministry and
will once again be providing a hot meal and housing for the homeless each night beginning in
December. St. Frances Cabrini has been asked again this year to participate and provide a
Sunday night meal each week over these 15 weeks. Our meals which we will cook
and then take and serve at Cross Style church located on Trinity Lane, here in Lebanon.
Last year we had enough people who volunteered, we were able to divide up
into groups/teams and each group/team cooked once a month.
Just as Deacon Hector mentioned in his Homily this past Sunday,
"In the meantime, keep in mind that a humble attitude comes from the
heart. So place yourself as a servant of the community rather than as a leader
and immerse yourself in the spirit of generosity and you will be exulted".
This is just one of the ways to help others in our community.
This is a wonderful outreach ministry and promises those who volunteer will be truly blessed.
If you're interested in volunteering by cooking and serving,
please call or email Nikki at the church office 615-444-0524 or email@example.com.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, November 6th for a meeting for all volunteers.
We will meet at 9:45 A.M. in the church.

St. Frances Cabrini Programa de seguridad
|Como ya he mencionado, domingos anteriores, estaremos implementando un Programa de Seguridad diseñado para proporcionar protección para usted y sus hijos durante los servicios de educación religiosa. Desafortunadamente hay que tomar medidas, pero creo que estarán de acuerdo, en que el mundo se ha convertido en un lugar más peligroso.
Nuestro Programa de Seguridad tendrá tres (3) niveles de protección:
||Un agente de policía armado con licencia y estará patrullando la parte frontal de la Iglesia para detener cualquier intruso antes de que llegue el interior de nuestro espacio de culto.
||Los que dan la bienvenida recibirán formación adicional para que sean más conscientes en la detección de personas que actúen de manera sospechosa y que potencialmente nos pudieran causar daño.
||Cinco (5) minutos después del comienzo de la misa, todas las puertas exteriores serán bloqueadas con la excepción de la puerta principal. Trate de llegar a misa a tiempo y evitar el "paseo de la vergüenza", como lo describió un feligrés.
|Además de estas medidas, la puerta en la parte superior de las escaleras que conducen al área de educación religiosa también se bloqueará cinco (5) minutos después del inicio de clases. Traiga a sus hijos a clase a tiempo para evitar la entrada a través de las otras puertas.
Si tiene alguna pregunta acerca de nuestro programa, pregúnteme a mí.
No se base en rumores y lo que dijeron por ahí.
Atentamente, Padre Michael
St. Frances Cabrini Safety Program
|As I mentioned-recently, we will be implementing a Safety Program designed to provide protection for you and your children during services and religious education. It is unfortunate that we must take such steps, but I think you will agree that the world has become a more dangerous place.
Our Safety Program will have three (3) layers of protection:
||A licensed and armed police officer will be patrolling the front of the Church
to stop any intrusion before it reaches the interior of our worship space.
||Our ushers and greeters will receive additional training to make them more
aware of behavior/activity of suspicious individuals who could potentially cause us harm.
||Five (5) minutes after Mass begins, all exterior doors will be locked with the exception of our front door. Get to Mass on time and avoid the “walk of shame” as described by one parishioner.
In addition to these measures, the door at the top of the steps leading into the Religious Education
wing will also be locked five (5) minutes after classes begin. Get your children to class on time to avoid entrance through our other doors.
If you have questions about our program, ask me.
Don’t rely on rumors and hear-say.
Parishioners, thanks for all you doing by contributing to the Parish Giving Cabinet,
to ensure the people in our Lebanon Community are being helped.

and Homebound Ministry
This ministry is an important role in our parish and we
want to nourish it with a more coordinated approach to our
hospitalized and homebound parishioners
so that our Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion will
know that we as a church are behind them in offering our
prayers and support.
If you know of a parishioner who would benefit from this
ministry, please call the church office at 444-0524 or
email Nikki at email@example.com
with their name and we will gladly contact them so that
they can begin
receiving Holy Communion from one of our
parishioners on the Hospital & Homebound Ministry.
