Upcoming Events








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.



Sanctuary Beautification Project

St. Cecilia's Environment Committee and Parish Council recently had the pleasure of reviewing the sanctuary enhancement concept developed by Fr. Tom Lucas S.J., the design consultation for the Archdiocese of Seattle.

Parishoners may recall back on November 30th, Father Lucas had been tasked with the job of taking ideas generated by our two sanctuary beautification project teams and creating one harmonized design concept for presentation to the congregation.


Fr. Tom Lucas will be visiting St. Cecilia to present and discuss the sanctuary redesign project on Tuesday, May 24th (presentation at 7pm), and Sunday May 29th (presentation at 12:30pm). All parishioners are encouraged to attend. You will have an opportunity to review the drawings of the proposed design, ask questions, make comments, voice your approval or disapproval, and help determine the future look and feel of St. Cecilia's sanctuary area. The Sunday presentation will be a repeat of Tuesday's presentation. It is not necessay to attend both, but by far the better option is to attend one of Fr. Tom's presentations. Hope to see everyone there!

God Bless,
