Sy. Cyril of Alexandria Church

Located on Brighton Road, in the heart of the Brighton Heights community, St. Cyril of Alexandria church stands as a testament to the families and church leaders who, since 1924, have worked and sacrificed to have a Catholic presence in the neighborhood.

Blessed Virgin Mary and the Infant Jesus

Adorning the left side of the altar, this statue of the Blessed Mother and Infant Jesus is surrounded by a blue mosaic, echoing the design of the mosaic at the center of the altar.

Prayer Chapel

Visitors to the church may stop to light a candle and say a prayer in the small chapel located in the vestibule. Also in this area is the Blessed Nunzio statue.

Stained glass window of St. Andrew

This stained glass window depicts St. Andrew. It is one of 31 uniquely designed windows found throughout the church building.

Parish Rectory

Home to the parish priests, the Rectory is located on Brighton Road, adjacent to the church and school buildings. The church office is also located in the front of the rectory.

Prayer Garden

Created to offer a beautiful place outdoors to pray and relax, the prayer garden is located on the lawn between the church and rectory. This path of memories was created with bricks that were individually donated in memory of deceased parishioners and friends, special events, Parish families and groups of students.

Interior of Church

St. Cyril of Alexandria and the Blessed Mother with the infant Jesus adorn the unique mosaic on the front altar inside of the church. Liturgical banners on either side of the altar were created by world renowned stained glass artist, Nick Parrendo.

Message from the Administrator



Welcome to our parishioners, neighbors and friends of St. Cyril of Alexandria parish.

“Welcome” is a word you will see and hear many times around our historic parish in Brighton Heights and around this Web site. The word and the sentiment are integral to our parish mission statement, which includes this sentence:  “Our parish family welcomes and accepts without judgment all those who wish to join us.”

Evidence that our welcome is heartfelt can be seen through our diverse membership:  We are young, mature, and old; we are kindergartners, college students, professionals, blue-collar laborers, and retirees; we are white, black, brown, Asian and every combination; we roll up to Church in our cars, on our bikes, and in our wheelchairs.

Inside St. Cyril’s church are two defining visual symbols:  a beautiful garnet and gold wall-sized mosaic behind the altar and 24 inspiring stain-glass windows.  The mosaic and the windows are composed of small sparkling pieces that together form an awe-inspiring picture.  That’s how we think of our multi-faceted congregation.

So join us for worship, prayer, education, community service, fellowship, and the sacramental celebration of every major life-affirming event.
