Parish Life Ministries
The Parish Life ministries add vibrancy to our community life by focusing on knitting social connection and care between and among parishioners.
The Hospitality Ministry prepares and serves food and refreshments to compliment parish socials, funerals, meetings, and liturgical celebrations. This ministry also includes special events during the year. Hospitality ministers are key to creating a warm and welcoming sensibility to parish gatherings.
AFTER MASS HOSPITALITY
Volunteers build community after the weekend Masses by preparing and serving coffee, tea, cookies, etc. and helping with clean-up.
Family Social events Committee
The Family Social Events Committee provides opportunities for parishioners to come together in friendship, community and service by planning and developing various activities. Some events include the Simbang Gabi Family Mass, Pentecost celebration, Church picnic/berry picking at L’Arche, and the All Saints/Dia de Los Muertos celebration. Volunteers are always needed to help pull together these events that strengthen the bonds between the members of our faith family, and help them to get to know one another better.

St. Leo’s Play Group
This play group provides a great opportunity for kids to play and parents to connect and support each other on the journey. Play dates are hosted at family homes, parks, and other kid-friendly venues. We meet twice a month during the week and have special weekend activities throughout the year. Activities are geared toward ages 0-5, but all families are welcome!
