Poverty Awareness Month - January




We are an active faith-filled parish located in Stanwood, Washington, in the Archdiocese of Seattle under Archbishop J. Peter Sartain. St. Cecilia is the only Washington parish staffed by the Order of the Discalced Carmelite Friars. The Carmelite charism of prayer and community provide an example and inspiration as our members strive to live the Gospel and move toward a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.

Through the Word, the Sacraments and love for one another, St. Cecilia Parish nourishes over 600 families and sustains over 40 different ministries that are centered on prayer and service to others - including the poor, the elderly, the homebound, Faith Formation for preschool through adult, and family programs.

Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you. God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whosoever has God lacks nothing. God alone suffices. ~ St. Teresa of Avila

St. Cecilia's Parish Mission Statement

St. Cecilia Parish, a community of followers of Jesus, nourished by the Word of God and the Sacraments, is called to proclaim the Good News to the community, and to serve those in need. We strive to do this by listening, prayer and sharing.



If you have moved or changed any of your contact information, please let the Parish Office know about it; so we have the most current information.


Church Beautification Project Update:

In the past ten years, we have added to our St. Cecilia’s, a new Social Hall, Parish Offices, New roof, and the parking lot.  Keep in mind, this is without ANY debt.  We have $360,000 in savings and $175,000 available for this Beautification Project.

For the past two years, the church parish council, environmental committee, finance committee and Father James have been working diligently and have now assigned Broderick Architects and Bruce Construction (both diocesan-recommended firms) and has Archbishop Sartain’s approval and blessing for the design chosen.

The following is an explanation of what is now needed from our parishioners.



Actual:        379,000

Spent:         - 17,000


Available:  -175,000


NEED:         187,000




Actual:          275,000

Spent:           - 17,000


Available:    -175,000


NEED:            83,000

The “ship has set sail,” we know our goal!  The sooner we can raise the balance of the necessary funds, the sooner we can reach that goal and create a beautiful worship space for future St. Cecilia generations to enjoy!

If you would like to contribute to this beautification, please use the specific envelopes for your donation.  Cash donations MUST be enclosed in these specific envelopes.  If you make out a check to St. Cecilia’s, please mark the memo on your check as “Church Beautification.” 

 If you have questions, please contact the Parish Office.    Thank you!
