Guidelines for Proposing a Parish Activity or Program

Thank you for your interest in proposing an activity or program that you hope will enhance parish life at Saint Cecilia. In all that we do, be it in the church, the classroom, the Parish Hall, or at a location away from Belvidere Street, we aim always to keep the Gospel at the center of our activities and to be one in mind and heart with the fundamental beliefs and teachings of the Catholic Church.

It will be helpful if you could take a few minutes to share with us what you propose, how you hope it will enhance our common discipleship, and other more practical matters.  The pastor, the parish staff, and the Parish Pastoral Council will review your proposal and you can expect to receive a response from someone in two weeks’ time. Please fill out the form below or see email option at bottom.
