On August 13th, we will be celebrating stewardship weekend at St Leo's Parish. Tables and sign-up sheets for each ministry and committee will be in the parish hall after the 10:30 liturgy, along with a fully furnished picnic lunch. A representative from each ministry will be available to answer your questions.
As we know there are many talented parishioners in our parish who would like to participate in the life of the parish, we encourage you to, please, take the first step and join us Sunday AUGUST 13th around 11:30am. Pray about it and “Come to the Fair.” Your presence on Sunday August 13th will be a testament to the strong community you belong to at St Leo's. Your support of parish life is truly appreciated.
There will also be activities for the young at heart too (ie. Bouncy house & obstacle course, just to name a few !!)
The following actions are offered only as examples of some of the ways to be a good steward, outside of the church ministries. We hope that these reflections will help you to be more aware of your gifts and open to God's call for you. We encourage you to make a conscious decision and personal commitment to use your time and talents over the next year to serve God and one another.
