Bread Partners Needed

In just a few short months, a number of the students in our parish will be receiving their First Holy Communion!
Parishioners are asked to consider signing up to be a Bread/prayer partner for one of the children.
A Bread Partner is given a child’s name, prays for that child daily, and periodically sends short notes of
encouragement to the child until First Holy Communion.
The Bread Partner also presents a loaf of bread to the child on Bread Sunday, April 23rd,
as a sign of the whole community’s participation in the Eucharist. Please contact Jan Trahan,
at 615-444-0524 or if you are willing to be a Bread/prayer partner.

Thank You

A sincere Thank You to all the St. Frances Cabrini Parishioners,
who have donated to the Giving Cabinet through the past year of 2016,
you helped serve 540 people from 166 families. Appreciation is endless.

Are you interested in having a piece of SFC history?
You’re in luck….we are selling our old church pews/kneelers for a cost of $150 per pew.
We ask that you make your check payable to SFC and bring it by the church office
during the hours of 8 A.M. until 12 noon, Monday through Thursday.
After receiving your check, we can go over to the old church and reserve the pew/kneeler of your choice.
All pews/kneelers are a packaged deal and must go together.
Also, it is each individuals own responsibility to remove their pew/kneeler at their own risk.
This money will go to benefit the building fund. The old church will be unlocked on
Saturday, December 17th from 10 A.M. until 2 P.M.


This past Sunday we celebrated the Rite of Acceptance and Welcoming into the Order of Catechisms
for the following members of the RCIA process who will be continuing their journey to Full Communion
in the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil:

Esmeralda Martinez, Benita Luna and Patrick Lynn
Please welcome them and keep them in your prayers

Bible Study

Are you interested in joining a Bible Study group at SFC?
Anyone interested, please contact Don Davis at 615-319-3356.
The class will be the third Wednesday of each month from 6-7:30 PM in the church hall.

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.
Fr. Michael

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.
