Welcome to St. Leo’s
We are a parish family from many lifestyles and histories, joined by our common belief in God and in his son, Jesus, the Christ. Blessed by the Holy Spirit with a wide variety of gifts and united together through Baptism, we strive to proclaim and live the Gospel. Nourished by the Word of God and the Eucharist, we minister to one another and together seek to evangelize those who are not of the faith community.
