St. Cecilia Parish Mission Statement We, the people of St. Cecilia Parish, recognize our call to grow as a faith community. Accepting the privilege and the challenge of this call, we envision our parish in the future as a treasure to the spreading of God's Kingdom on earth for His greater honor and glory.
One that creates and nourishes Christian community by: its emphasis on the Eucharistic Liturgy as the central focus of parish life and on the sacramental system as the most powerful means of spiritual growth and continuing conversion of life.
A community that proclaims the Good News by: living out our belief that God is Creator and Father of us all and we are brothers and sisters to one another.
A community that teaches the message of Christ by: supporting and affirming the ministry of Catholic Education in the school, in the parish school of religion and through the many avenues of adult education.
A community that serves those in need by: establishing and supporting organizations which reach out as the incarnational presence of Jesus to the elderly, the lonely, the neglected, the hungry and all those in need.
We realize that this statement is merely the end of the beginning. We pray for God's guidance and strength to continue to respond to this call to be a parish faith community.
