When we think of sympathy and compassion, especially in the name of Jesus Christ, the ministries of Pastoral Care immediately come to mind.

We here at St. Cecelia Parish are especially dedicated to this important ministry. We have outreach to those who are homebound, in...

This is Catechetical Sunday weekend. The national theme this weekend is “I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you”.

How true this is! In so many ways, we all have the call to pass on our Faith in Christ to others!  In the family setting this is most importa...

It is so wonderful to see young people in church! We know how important our youth are in so many ways!

Sometimes it can be difficult to recognize the divinity of Jesus when we have not per...
