There isn't any built-in way to center text in a frame, BUT you might 
try a different approach.

Make the frame just tall enough for the text, then use Windows > Align 
and Distribute, where you can center the frame vertically and 
horizontally with the Page as a reference.

You also have to consider that depending on the text, a "true" 
vertically centered text may not necessarily appear so, or be as 
pleasing to the eye as you would think.
