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
