Calling All Altar Angels!


We will meet in the church on Monday, Dec. 24 at 9:00 AM after the morning mass.

You’ll need to complete the Office for the Protection of children and Vulnerable Adults online training. This is required to work with children.

Go to www.virtusonline.com. You can print your completed certificate at the end and bring a copy to the Parish Center or you can give it to Shirley when you come to decorate. This will be placed on file in the Parish Center and is good for three years. We really appreciate your help. Please come, even if you can only help for a little while, it would be a great help!

Celebrate Simbang Gabi With FilAm Group December 18

St Frances Cabrini’s FilAm Group invites the community to join with it in celebrating Simbang Gabi. A 7:00 PM Mass will be followed by a Pot Luck gathering in Essig Hall on December 18.
“Simbang Gabi is a Filipino Christmas tradition. It is a series of nine dawn masses. The mass starts as early as 4:00 a.m. It begins on December 16 and ends on the midnight of the 24th of December, which is the midnight mass.
This tradition was introduced by the Spanish friars to allow the farmers to hear mass before going to the fields early in the morning. Simbang Gabi is also known by its popular Spanish name as the Misa de Gallo, or ‘Mass of the Rooster.”’

Quan Kok Selected for the Saints in the City Santa Teresa Award

Congratulations to Quan Kok on his selection for the Saints in the City Santa Teresa Award. It is given to one youth from each parish who has carried the torch of discipleship with fearless faith, enduring hope and bountiful charity.

Quan has been an altar server since the age of 9 years, and is now our number one Altar Server at St. Frances Cabrini. He is the assistant trainer for Fr. Michael with the altar servers and has been our Master of Ceremonies for Easter Vigil and other major liturgical celebrations. Every Sunday you can find him playing the piano at the 9:30 AM Family Mass. Quan is a senior in a Home Schooling High School and was elected Treasurer of its student council.

The Saints in the City Banquet is an opportunity for all of the leaders of the Diocese of San Jose to honor our youth who have carried the torch of discipleship with fearless faith, enduring hope and bountiful charity.

Each parish and high school selects one youth as their 2018 honoree. We recognize each of these young heroes and honor their commitment to the Great Commission and their eager response to the New Evangelization.
