Faith & Education
Faith is a gift from God, it is knowledge born of love! Faith formation aims at growing in the knowledge of God who is love. At St. Cecilia we intend to continue this formation and sacramental preparation for grades Kindergarten through High School.
Please contact Stacy Dixon if you would like to assist in any of our faith formation programs.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
The RCIA is the series of learning sessions and celebrations by which adults learn and experience the Roman Catholic church in order to become a member, or, to refresh knowledge of the faith. Year-round RCIA classes will take place on Sundays at 9:00am in the St. Monica Room.
Contact Sonya Quitslund, our RCIA Teacher, for more information at (206) 842-3751. Please turn in completed registration forms to our Pastoral Assistant for Faith Formation, Stacy Dixon in the Parish Office.
Classes are required for those who volunteer with any children or vulnerable adults. They are offered periodically in our parish. To join a class, go to the Virtus website and look for St. Cecilia. Classes are also offered in other parishes and the Chancery (next door to the Cathedral in Seattle). More information can be found on our Safe Environment page.
Located next to the St. Monica room in the Faith Center, the parish library is a fantastic resource for books, movies, and religious materials. The library is open every Sunday after the 8:00 am Mass until 11:45 am. Come and check out a book or just browse the shelves.
