We are an active faith-filled parish located in Stanwood, Washington, in the Archdiocese of Seattle under Archbishop Paul D. Etienne, D.D., S.T.L. 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

We will be bringing our bulletins back! While we are operating on a limited basis and restrictions are in place our bulletin will be distributed on a monthly basis.

Weekly Mass Intensions



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.

                       St. Cecilia's Parish Mission Statement



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.

As Catholics we are called to take concrete measures to overcome the misunderstanding, ignorance, competition, and fear that stand in the way of genuinely welcoming the stranger in our midst and enjoying the communion that is our destiny as Children of God.                                                       Welcoming the Stranger Among Us: Unity in Diversity, A Statement of the U.S. Catholic Bishops
