About St. Leo the Great Parish

St. Leo is a Jesuit parish, a Catholic community centered in the Eucharist, enriched by diversity, committed to Gospel values, and continually seeking to be Christ’s servant presence in the world.
St. Leo practices a radical hospitality rooted in Ignatian Spirituality. We seek to be poor with the poor, and it is through the communal prayer of the people that we stay inspired and undeterred in our commitment to work with God in the transformation of injustice. We try to remain humble in the light of the Spirit demonstrating what it means that all are not only welcome but belong at the table.

Ignatian Spirituality

The Ignatian Spiritual Life Center is grounded in the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Catholic religious order the Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits.
