Opportunity to give Fr. Secora a
special retirement prayer gift!


Father Secora retires from active priesthood July 13, 2020.  The weekend of July 11, 12 is his final weekend as our Pastor.  He has been our Pastor for twelve years. In honor of this occasion we have the opportunity to present him a  Spiritual Bouquet from all St. Cecilia Parishioners.

A Spiritual Bouquet is a collection of prayers, rosaries, spiritual and/or charitable acts offered for a specific intention —- in this case Father Secora.  A special card has been created for this gift on which parishioners may indicate what prayers and/or acts they would like to offer.  Together our cards will become the Spiritual Bouquet we will present Father, an everlasting gift.

These cards and envelopes are now available in a red basket in the Narthex. If you are attending Mass on Sunday, please take one for yourself or your family (one per household, please). If you are choosing to attend Mass virtually, stop in the Narthex to pick up a card. Fill it out and return it to the wooden chest in the Narthex. Thank you for participating in this gift for Father Secora!
