St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church

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 3rd and December 17th from 10 A.M. until 2 P.M.

Parish Angel Tree Project

We ask parishioners to help us reach out to families within our Parish who need help this Christmas.

There are forms in the back of the church which we ask you fill out with complete information regarding
a family in our parish that you believe is in need of our assistance to make sure they have a very Merry Christmas.
These forms need to be returned to Jan Trahan, myself (Christen Tressler), or the church mailbox
over at the Church office by SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20

After the forms have been collected, we will prepare the angels to be
picked from our Christmas tree to be shopped for.

We ask that you choose an angel and shop for the item, wrap,
and return the gifts with the angel tag attached by SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11

The gifts will be picked up or delivered to each family before Christmas.
The Pick-up date is SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18

If you have any questions regarding any of the above, please contact me.
Email: or call the church: 615-444-0524.

Subject: End of the Year Giving Opportunity
To: The Parish Community at St. Frances Cabrini From: Fr. Michael

The Christmas Season is fast upon us if we listen to the messages of the retailers on TV,
their exhortations in print media, as well as, their constant presence on the internet
and just about every other place that we turn.
You will recall what follows fast on its heels, don’t you? Yes, the “Tax Man” cometh.

But there is a way to lessen the “bite” of the IRS if you are able do some planning
and have some excess cash that you don’t want Uncle Sam to get
his hands on and that is taking advantage of allowable deductions,
such as making a contribution to our building fund.

Most people would rather have a say in how their money is spent rather than propping
up some third world dictator through a government agency.
I can assure you that we can wisely use your donation to address a need in own church community.
It should be obvious to all that the Catholic presence in Wilson County is increasing and yet,
we are confined to a structure that was dedicated in 1953.

Brothers and sisters, can you help us out!

May peace and prosperity be your reward,

Fr. Michael

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

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

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.
