Feast of Saint Cecilia

Patron saint of music

COME CELEBRATE THE FEAST OF ST CECILIA WITH US!

St Cecilia is the patron saint of our parish and every year on her feast day, we celebrate her life. She was an early martyr of the Catholic Church, dying for her faith. She was a wealthy Roman girl born around 200 AD (but her official dates of birth and death are unknown), who heard music from heaven, and converted her husband and brother-in-law to Catholicism when she married. They then went and saved other Christians from being buried disrespectfully, but were arrested and killed. St Cecilia was also killed, from a wound in her neck. She died preaching the Word of God.
