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 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


CATHOLIC QUOTE OF THE WEEK:   “Dedicate yourselves to thankfulness.” (Colossians 3:15b). 



Eucharistic Adoration – Pope John Paul II:

I encourage Christians regularly to visit Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament, for we are called to abide in the presence of God. In contemplation, Christians will perceive ever more profoundly the mystery at the heart of Christian life.

Teach young people the value of Eucharistic Adoration:  I urge priests, religious, and lay people to continue and redouble their efforts to teach the younger generations the meaning and value of Eucharistic Adoration and devotion.  How will young people be able to know the Lord if they are not introduced to the mystery of His presence?  Like the young Samuel, by learning the words of the prayer of the heart, they will be closer to the Lord, who will accompany them in their spiritual and human growth.  The Eucharistic mystery is in fact the “summit of evangelization” (Lumen Gentium) for it is the most eminent testimony to Christ’s resurrection.  READ MORE....
