“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life." Jn 3:16

FROM THE DESK OF FR. MARIO


Greetings,

      Thank you so much for visiting the web site 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

VERBUM DOMINI- The Word of The Lord
The Solemn Proclamation of The Word of God

“The proclamation of the Word of God, and the Gospel in particular, should  be solemn, especially on major liturgical feasts, through the use of the Gospel Book, carried in procession during the opening rites and then brought to the lectern by a deacon or priest for proclamation.
