Parish Life

Parish Life

 

The heart of a parish is the Eucharist.  The parish family, enriched by the Eucharist, is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the Sacraments.

Faith formation is a vital element of our Catholic life as we grow in the knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. This deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Our parish has many opportunities for you not only to grow in your own faith through formation programs, but to share your faith while teaching our children as a catechist or aide, or a volunteer in our youth program.

Another way to participate in our parish life is through our various parish ministries.  You may choose to serve in our liturgies as a choir member, lector, altar server, greeter, usher, sacristan, or Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist. Perhaps you may become involved by visiting the homebound, participating in Respect Life activities, or becoming an Arimathean who supports grieving families. You may wish to join the Ladies of St. Leo Guild in their wide range of projects in support of our parish, or the Knights of Columbus whose activities foster fraternal bonds and serve others. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities for getting involved in a ministry.

With so many ways to be part of parish life, you'll want to stay informed by regularly reading the weekly bulletin, just in case you've misplaced the one you received at Mass you can link to the current, as well as past, issues on this website. You’ll also want to check the parish calendar for a list of events and Mass schedules.
