Compassionate HANDS
The Compassionate Hands Ministry that was formed in Lebanon 2 years ago will once again be providing a hot meal and housing for the homeless each night beginning in December. SFC has been asked again this year to participate and provide a Sunday night meal each week which we will 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.  This is a wonderful outreach ministry and I promise that those who volunteer will be truly blessed.  If you’re interested in volunteering by cooking, please call or email Nikki at the church office at 615-444-0524 or or for more information.
Also mark your calendar for Sunday, November 8th for a meeting for all volunteers.
We will meet at 9:45 A.M. at the church office

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

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.
