Pursuit Family Night!


PURSUIT 

​Who should attend:
The evening is specifically designed for middle school and high school age students and their parents.  
*We are not able to provide childcare for younger children during this program.

What is Pursuit?
What are you pursuing in your life? There are so many things in this world vying for our attention, but we are made for more. Pursuit is a 90 minute "miniature retreat" to start the conversation between young people and their parents about the greater pursuits of life.

2019 Pursuit Theme:
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed him. Mathew 4:18-20

Join us as we explore what it means to say "YES" to the Lord's call within our own lives.
 

Sunday, March 24, 6:30 PM at St. Joseph Catholic Church (Martinsburg)

Homeless Ministry

The St. Leo Homeless Ministry would like to thank all parishioners who donated gift cards and food for the soup kitchen held at Immanuel House in Martinsburg. We were able to feed between 80 and 100 people!

We are currently working on adding a soup kitchen in Inwood. When a location has been secured, we hope to have parishioners help with the set up, serving, and clean up. For more information contact Monica Cressin at homelessministry@stleo.com.

Pray for our Seminarians!

Gift Card Program

Our Gift Card Ministry helps take a bite our of our church debt. Every weekend, we have Martins, Food Lion, Target, Walmart, Sheetz, Lowes, and Amazon cards available. Many more gift cards for retail stores and restaurants are available for preorder. There is a list on the gift card table in the narthex. If you do not see a particular store on the list, please contact the office (304-229-8945 or secretary@stleo.com).

St. Leo receives a percentage from each card sold, which helps to pay down our building debt. It's a win-win situation! You get face value of the gift card, we get a percentage back from the program.

There are many occasions coming up that would be a perfect opportunity to help...Easter, Mother's Day, First Communion, Confirmation, graduations. 

Gift cards are sold on Sundays after the 9 am Mass until 11:15 am. Cards are also available in the church office during the week, Monday through Thursday, from 9 am until 4 pm.
