Welcome to Saint Cecilia Parish

Serving the Community of Ashland, Massachusetts

Greetings from St. Cecilia Parish in Ashland, Massachusetts. We invite all who seek the warm embrace of solace and friendship in the Lord to join us in fellowship.

If you are new to St. Cecilia Parish, please consider introducing yourselves to our Pastor, Father Cornell after Mass. You may also call the office at (508) 881-1107 or submit a request here to register.  We encourage you to become active members of our Parish Family.

Our Church (side door) and our Family Center are both handicap accessible. All are welcome.

- ATTENTION:  We have received notice from several parishioners of St. Cecilia Parish that an email  that appears to be from Fr. Cornell was sent to them. These are coming from a Gmail account, which Fr. Cornell does not use. If you receive this, please delete the message. It is an attempt by malicious parties to scam you out of money. Thank you

Please note the instructions on the tag you take: if the gift should be wrapped or unwrapped. It is important to return the gift by the date on the tag, and it is very important as well to tape the tag to the gift.
