St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church

A Parish and School of National Distinction

 A Welcome From Our Pastor, Fr. Mario Tizziani


         Thank you so much for visiting the website of St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church. St. Cecilia's, a Parish of the Diocese of Covington, KY, is located in Independence, KY. Independence, the county seat of Kenton County, although appearing rural, is actually the largest city in the Commonwealth and is also the fastest growing city as well! Our Parish has a rich history in this community, with many parishioners whose families have been members for generations; as well as a significant number of families who are recent transplants from other communities.
         Ours is a Parish where growth in faith and service for Jesus Christ is encouraged and fostered through worship, catechesis, devotion to the Sacraments, and volunteerism in a variety of facets. In accord with our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and the teachings of the Magisterium, we seek to prepare parishioners as witnesses for the Lord wherever they may be. As an outreach of our Parish, St. Cecilia Elementary School provides a quality Catholic education for our children from pre-school through the 8th grade.
         Information for participating in our Parish life is provided herein. If you are currently a parishioner of St. Cecilia's, you may enjoy visiting your home site; if by chance you have been away from the Church or are searching for a Parish home, please come and visit! I believe you will find St. Cecilia's to be exactly the church you have been looking for.
         On behalf of the wonderful Parishioners of St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church, I welcome you!

                                                                                                                 The Lord bless you and keep you,

                                                                                                                             Fr. Mario Joseph Tizziani

As our St Cecilia School has closed for the school year, the school building itself is officially closed and will remain closed throughout the summer as work will be done in the school in conjunction with the construction of our new building. Please plan accordingly as the keys will not be available for meetings to be held in the school. Apologies for the inconvenience; however, it will sure be worth it when the transition is completed! Thank you in advance for your kindness and patience in this endeavor! 


One of the greatest blessings in being part of the True Church is the fact that we have the ability to be in the Presence of the Lord at Adoration. Being in His Presence means that we have the ability to be near and look upon the One who gave His everything so that we could have everything. Being in His Presence means that, in the midst of a world tossed about by turmoil and sin, one is able to adore in sacred silence and peace! There are several vacant times available to pray, meditate and adore the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament during Exposition on Thursdays from 8:30 am until Benediction at 7:00 pm. If you are interested, please contact Russ Connors at 859-468-0130 and he will provide the open hours. Even during hours that are covered, everyone is encouraged to visit the Church and join in spending some time before our Eucharistic Lord. An hour spent in prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament will be the best hour of your week!!!  


God, our Father, You made each of us to use our gifts in the Body of Christ. We ask that you inspire those in our Diocese whom you are calling to the priesthood to courageously follow Your will. Send laborers into Your great harvest so that the Gospel is preached, the poor are served with love, the suffering are comforted, and your people are strengthened by the sacraments. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Please personally encourage men to consider a vocation to the priesthood.
