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.


Knights of Columbus Scholarship

Every year, the Knights of Columbus award scholarships to Catholic high school seniors who will be continuing their education the following year. In addition to the Scholarship Form, applicants must submit a 3-5 page essay on the topic “How I Will Demonstrate My Catholic Faith in College.” Please submit the completed scholarship application & essay to the Parish Office by May 1, 2023.  Scholarships will be awarded at the Knight’s Mother’s Day Breakfast.

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.
