Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.



Well we have had Mass for two weekends. Things have gone very well considering all the new changes we have had to deal with.  There have been a few hiccups and I suspect we will have a few more.  Please be patient with the staff and your fellow parishioners as this is an ever-changing environment where we are working to solve problems as they arise. 

Now for the good news!  Beginning this week, we will end telephone and webpage registration.  We will still need to register everyone, but we will now do it as you come to Mass.  You will still enter through the Hall.  We still need you to practice Social distancing and use the green markers on the floor as your guide.  The wearing of masks is required.  Usher’s will seat you in the church. With this change we need people to arrive early so we do not get backed up just before the start of Mass.  We need the Mass to start on time.  The doors will open 45 minutes prior to each Mass.

Up to this point no one has been turned away from any of the Masses.  We do not anticipate having to turn anyone away because of this change.  Keep in mind however should we reach capacity this could occur. Hence the reason to arrive early.

One small request, everyone is welcome to return to a pew after communion to pray but we would ask that between the Sunday 9:00am and the 11:00am you keep that time brief so our staff has sufficient time to properly clean the facility between those two Mass.  Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated!

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

                       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.



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
