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

Spotlight on Ministry

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.


Holy Door Pilgrimage


           Everyone from our parish is invited! 

           We are scheduled to go in the Holy Door 

           Sunday, Oct. 16  

Please gather in the church parking lot at 1:00 p.m. to carpool to St. James.  Anyone  under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent.  Parking at O’Dea High School and the Cabrini parking lot are both free on Sundays. We will meet in front of the Holy Doors on the west side of the cathedral.  Parishioners from Holy Family Parish in Kirkland will also enter the Holy Doors with us.  This will be followed with a short tour of the cathedral and vespers, which ends at 4:30 p.m.

What is the Holy Door?  Pope Francis has announced that in the extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, a Holy Door is to be opened in every cathedral around the world.  St. James Cathedral in Seattle has designated its bronze doors, covered in depictions of stories of God’s mercy, as the church’s Holy Doors.  The open door is a symbol for the open access to the mercy of God.  Pilgrims who pass through a cathedral’s Holy Door are granted a Jubilee Year indulgence.   

Holy Door Indulgence                                                                                                               

The faithful may gain a plenary indulgence once per day for oneself or for a soul in Purgatory by:

Devoutly passing through the Holy Door

Praying the Our Father and the Creed for the intentions of our Holy Father

Meeting the ordinary conditions:

1)  An interior disposition of complete detachment from sin

2)  Making a sacramental confession

3)  Receiving the Holy Eucharist

The “ordinary conditions” must be completed within a week to 10 days before or after passing through the Holy Door.
