Faith Formation for youth

Ministry with youth at St. Leo parish this coming year will emerge from the parents, youth, and parishioners who are interested in making it happen.  Fr. Matt Holland will convene interested parishioners in late August and early September to engage them in planning the year ahead.   The ministry to both middle school and high school youth will depend on the leadership of parishioners.  Watch the bulletin and parish webpage for what emerges. 


The next celebration of youth Confirmation at St. Leo Parish will be in the Spring of 2020, and preparation will begin in the Fall of 2019. 

youth migrant project

During the summer we participate in the Youth Migrant Project, a week long service-learning trip in the Skagit Valley.

Questions?  Please contact the Blair Bellis, St. Leo Youth Minister at 253-272-5136 ext. 111 or She is happy to meet one-on-one and provide more information including:

  • Schedules of events
  • A longer description of our activities
  • Information about Safe Environment training for adults who want to participate.

Volunteer Ministers

Our youth in both groups rely on the adults of our parish to be leaders and great examples! Volunteers can serve in a variety of capacities including chaperones, small group discussion leaders, drivers, and meal/snack preparation. All volunteers must receive a background check, interview, and safe environment training for working with vulnerable populations.
