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

Please see the updates we have posted on our website. Below is where you can find them.



Notice to all Parishioners to BE ALERT for potential scammers! The following important alert has been providedd by the Archdiocese's Office of Parish Financial Service!

We have become aware of a situation (currently under investigation) in a Seattle Parish in which new parishioners (a couple) posing as professionals have joined a congregation,made friends with other parishioners and then requested large loans from them in order to take care of a short term financial crisis (ailing relatives, non-paying clients, etc.). PLEASE avoid responding to these requests should they be made by anyone that you do not know for a long time and for whom you truly understand their family and financial situation. If you are approached, please report the incident to the Parish Office so the Archdiocese and police can be alerted! Please be vigilant!

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

Men and Women's Retreat's in March 


April 28 - 30

“Onward: The Surprising Ways of Grace”

Men's & Women's Silent Retreat

Led by: Jennifer Kelly, Fr. Mike Bayard, S.J.

Grace is readily apparent and welcome when it comes through the blessings of our lives: falling in love, a newborn child, beautiful sunsets, a healing. It can be harder to recognize the grace of God in a health trauma, loss or trial of some kind. Some experiences feel like they're pulling us downward, backward or under water when possibly, through the mysterious grace of God, we are in fact being pulled onward and forward into our deepest self and more abundant life.

From the horrific three days of Jesus’ passion and death followed by his quiet resurrection, his dear friends move onward into the surprising ways of grace. Join Fr. Mike Bayard and Jennifer Kelly in exploring this mysterious, often wonderful and sometimes awful grace of God that is always drawing us onward into the fullness of life.
