Building Fellowship & Bettering Communities through the Gospel
Altar servers assist with preparations necessary for the celebration of the Eucharist and aid the priests during Mass. This ministry is open to all adults and young people who are registered in the parish and have made their First Communion. A youth server is required to attend the Faith Formation program for his or her age or a youth group program. Youth training takes place from September to April. Adult training is one-on-one throughout the year. Please contact Tom Moline at 941-776-9097 or email.
Lectors proclaim the Word of the Lord during the liturgy and lead the General Intercessions. A lector must have a passion for Scripture and an ability to interpret and understand Scripture. This ministry is open to all adults and young people who have made their First Communion and are registered in the parish. Training sessions are required. Please contact Lydia Herrera at 941-776-9097 or email.
When we gather together at the Altar of the Lord to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to our Heavenly Father, it is essential that we offer Him humble praise and worship with our best singing voices. In this way we return our humble talents to our God who provides everything for us. If you have a talent for singing and a heart for worship, this may be the ministry for you.
The choir meets on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. in the music room at the church, beginning in mid-October - Easter. Cantors serve in the Music Ministry year round.
If you wish to join the choir, or you are an experienced Cantor, contact David Collins at:
St. Frances Cabrini Church has an active Homebound and Nursing Home Ministry. Extraordinary Ministers visit our Parish Members who are unable to attend Mass due to illness or physical incapacities bringing them the Eucharist on a weekly basis.
If you know of a parishioner who is unable to attend Mass due to illness please call the church office (776-9097) to notify the Homebound Ministry. This can be for a short illness, recovering from surgery or for long term.
If you know of a parishioner who is admitted to a nursing home for rehab or for long term care please call to notify the Homebound Ministry.
Homebound and Nursing Home Ministry
The role of the Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, or Eucharistic Minister, is to assist the celebrant in the distribution of the Eucharist at every regularly-scheduled weekend Mass. Eucharistic Ministers serve with dignity and reverence at God's presence in the Eucharist. In addition to serving at Mass, Eucharistic Ministers may, on occasion, bring Christ to the ill and homebound. Training is performed at the church by appointment. Please contact Rick Poplstein at 941-776-9097.
