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,

                                                                                                                             Fr. Mario Joseph Tizziani

CATHOLIC QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “True charity consists in putting up with all one's neighbor's faults, never being surprised by his weakness, and being inspired by the least of his virtues." St Therese of Liseaux (1873-97)

CATECHISM

I Believe in the Resurrection of the Body – “The Christian Creed – the profession of our faith in God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and in God’s creative, saving, and sanctifying action – culminates in the proclamation of the resurrection of the dead on the last day and in life everlasting. We firmly believe, and hence we hope that, just as Christ is truly risen from the dead and lives for ever, so after death the righteous will live for ever with the risen Christ and he will raise them up on the last day. Our resurrection, like his own, will be the work of the Most Holy Trinity: ‘If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit who dwells in you” (CCC 988-9).  

LUMEN FIDEI – THE LIGHT OF FAITH – POPE FRANCIS ​

Knowledge of the Truth and Love  –“Precisely because faith-knowledge is linked to the covenant with a faithful God who enters into a relationship of love with man and speaks his word to him, the Bible presents it as a form of hearing; it is associated with the sense of hearing. St Paul would use a formula which became classic: fides ex auditu, ‘faith comes from hearing.’ Knowledge linked to a word is always personal knowledge; it recognizes the voice of the one speaking, opens up to that person in freedom and follows him or her in obedience. Paul could thus peak of the ‘obedience of faith.’ Faith is also a knowledge bound to the passage of time, for words take time to be pronounced, and it is a knowledge assimilated only along a journey of discipleship. The experience of hearing can thus help to bring out more clearly the bond between knowledge and love” (LF 29).
