Serving Our Community
God did not want us to merely exist, He created and designed each one of us to serve! He, Himself set the perfect example, He came to serve, not to be served. Serving can satisfy the God-given hunger for fulfillment and fruitfulness. It has been said, “The only really happy people are those who have learned how to serve.”
Please put your Faith into Action by joining one of our many ministries and/or Participating in Parish Functions!
Altar care is responsible for the liturgical environment, which includes cleaning and preparing the altar, communion vessels, candles and flowers every Saturday morning for the weekend Masses. For more information on this ministry please contact Rose Mascunana at 912-925-3197.
Liturgical functions, especially the Mass, are the heart and soul of a Parish.

The ministry of singing God’s praises at each of our Masses is a most rewarding form of prayer. Saint Frances Cabrini has two choirs, the Contemporary Choir that sings at the Vigil (5:30 pm) Mass on Saturday, and the Traditional Choir that sings at the 11:00 am Mass on Sundays. We sing traditional and contemporary hymns and psalms. No musical training is necessary. We come together as one, several times a year for major celebrations. For information contact Jim Anderson at 912-925-9605 or James.email@example.com
Extraordinary Ministries of Holy Communion
The term “Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion” is used to distinguish them from “Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion” who are priests or deacons. You assist the priest and deacon with the distribution of Holy Communion during Mass, may also conduct a Holy Communion Service in the absence of a priest or deacon, and can take Holy Communion to the sick and homebound. You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age and have received the three Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation). Given the importance of this ministry and its special relationship with the Holy Eucharist, persons may be so designated only by appointment from the diocesan bishop following a recommendation by their pastor. For information on this ministry contact the Parish Office.
The Finance Committee prepares and oversees the budget for the parish. Members are appointed by the pastor. For more information on this ministry please contact the Parish Office.

The lectors’ ministry bears the responsibility of proclaiming God’s Word to the people in the service of the faith. The message of salvation is read to the congregation through both the Old Testament and the New Testament at each Mass. Thus, we acquire a deeper understanding and love of the Scripture and are privileged to share this knowledge with the faithful. Lectors serve at all Masses on the weekend as well as Masses on Holy Days of Obligation. For more information about participating in this ministry contact the Parish Office.
The Parish Council is a representative body, which seeks to assess the spiritual and temporal needs of the parish and encourage participation of all members in the spiritual and apostolic life of the parish. We also exercise a vital role in the decision making process of the parish in open dialogue with the priests and representatives of the parish community to reach consensus. The Council membership consists of six (6) lay members elected by the parish at large to serve two-year terms, members from each of the Church ministries, and the Parish Priest. Contact the Parish Office for more information.
The Parish Life Committee plans and sets up celebratory receptions and other special events, like Breakfast With Santa, to foster communication and fellowship among Parish members.
