St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church

Celebrating 100 years with a Ground breaking
We are breaking ground! This is the moment that so many of us have been waiting for and it also coincides with the
100th anniversary of a Catholic presence in Wilson County.

Bishop David Choby will be joining us on August 16th to celebrate Mass at 8:30 am and then again at 11:00 am.
In between those two Masses, we will ceremoniously “break ground” for our new church at 10:00 am.
This symbolic event will take place on the church lawn, next to the rectory. Why there, you might be asking?
To prevent a large number of people and children from having to cross the parking lot between Masses
in order to get to a ceremonial site north of the parking lot as cars leave and arrive for church services.

Shovels will be provided and all parishioners will have the opportunity to turn a shovel full of dirt if they so choose.
Plastic shovels will be there for the children to join in the action.
Bring your cameras to record the event, but please, please no cameras or
flash photography in-side the church during Mass.

There will be parking attendants to help you find a place to park with what we expect will be an overflow crowd.
You can park at the church, in the field north of the church or at Cumber-land University.
There will be additional handicapped places marked off near the church.

Importantly, we ask all parents to walk their child/children into the parish hall and class-rooms that day,
as it will be the 1st day of Religious Education classes.
Don’t assign that responsibility to an older sibling. No “drop offs” will be permitted.

After the ground breaking, there will be a “sweet treat” for all present in the form of a scoop of ice cream.
It’s just a small way to say thanks for your cooperation that day and for helping to make t
his dream of a new church come to fruition.

Thank you for having “Faith in Our Future”.
Giving Cabinet
The amount of families visiting The Giving Cabinet has increased during the summer months.
We speculate this could be due to the fact that children not being in school are requiring more food at home.
The families are incredibly thankful and appreciate the love and support shown to them by your generosity.
The last of the 205 bags of food and hygiene items you supplied the cabinet during Lent have been given out.
Look forward to this event again in Lent 2016.
Thank you to all the Giving Cabinet Volunteers.
Volunteers for July 23 are Lynda Hart and Cathy Maggart
August 13 Terri Clere and Marianne Russell

engaged_couple Nashville Diocese Engaged Couples Retreat:
The Diocese of Nashville holds nine Engaged Couples Retreats throughout the year, hosted by different parishes around the diocese. 
This is a full day of talks, couples exchange, and group discussions to help couples in their preparation for marriage. 
The talks include Myers-Briggs, Communication, Finance, Intimacy and Spirituality. 
The retreat for June 2015 was the first for a couple of items. 
First, it was the first time the retreat was held in the new Catholic Pastoral Center on McGavock Pike. 
Also, it was the first time St. Frances Cabrini hosted the retreat. 
Couples were Ken and Barb Condit, Michael and Katy Moscardelli, Bernie and Christine Sy, Deacon Paul and Amy Taylor. 
There was also great teamwork and assistance from members of St. Stephen Catholic Community; Mark and Cheryl Marsh, and Zig and Ann Wajler. 
The Engaged Couples Retreat is coordinated by Deacon Tom Samoray with assistance from his wife Barb.

Hospital 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 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.
