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










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

                       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.


Beginning August 15and ending October 7 is a rosary novena for the United States of America. This rosary novena is called Rosary Coast to Coast. The purpose of the novena is to bring our country back to the principles of the Gospel and to tun our eyes back to God. In other words, its main focus is the sanctification of the United States of America. A number of bishops and high ranking church officials have endorsed this effort, the most prominent being His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke. I strongly encourage each member of our parish to take part in the Rosary Coast to Coast. If you want more information, you can visit the website at: http://rosarycoasttocoast.com
