St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church

A Parish and School of National Distinction

 A Welcome From Our Pastor, Fr. Mario Tizziani

Greetings,

         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 recently 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 Magesterium, 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,
                                             
                                                                                                                  Father Mario Tizziani

An Altar In Your Home

One doesn’t need to have a chapel in their home in order to have a prayer area. It is a great idea to set aside some area in the house that is always kept clean and clear which becomes an invitation for prayer, reading and reflection. This can become your home altar. Our kids today yearn for silence, but they find very little of it. Provide that environment for them. They will respond to a sacred space with reference if you present it as such. It is important to let your children know that they are welcome to spend time in the prayer place. If you have small children, set out a non-breakable statue, crucifix and a children’s Bible. If your kids are older, leave out a prayer book or a book on the lives of the Saints as well as the Bible and a crucifix. You will find a family altar will allow every member of the family to sit down, take a deep breath and find peace and comfort in the presence of God.
