Parish History

Learn about the history of St. Cecilia


Welcome to St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Ames, Iowa!

Thank you for visiting our website!

How best to summarize this vibrant church family? I believe our parish mission statement says it best. St. Cecilia Catholic Church is a community:

  • FORMED by the Word of God. View the many faith formation opportunities for every member of our parish, from early childhood through adult. We are committed to helping each other grow in our common walk of discipleship.
  • UNITED by the Holy Eucharist. As a Roman Catholic community it is in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist that we are united in Jesus and through which we are strengthened and nourished to carry out our mission in the world.
  • ENLIVENED by the Holy Spirit. Formed by the Word of God, Nourished by the Holy Eucharist we are sent forth by the Holy Spirit.  View the many ministry and service opportunities we offer.

If you are looking for a parish home, I hope you will consider making St. Cecilia Church your home. If you are just visiting our area, please know that we welcome you to make St. Cecilia your “home away from home” while in the Ames area.

God bless you!

Rev. Don Czapla
