Happening at St. Leo

We have received information from our Bishop regarding Holy Week celebrations. Bishop Brennan wishes to fully comply with Governor Jim Justice's call to "shelter in place". To that end, palms will not be distributed on Palm Sunday weekend, as Bishop Brennan feels the risk to the faithful and clergy would be too great. It is possible that we will distribute palms at a later date.

Masses during Holy Week will be celebrated as Father Alfred has been celebrating Mass recently-live streaming, without a congregation.

Fr. Alfred intends to keep the same schedule as we have in the past:

Holy Thursday Mass at 7:00pm

Good Friday Veneration of the Cross at 7:00pm

 Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday at 8:00pm

 Easter Sunday Mass at 10:00am

 If there are any changes to this schedule or any additional information, we
will have the information here, on our Facebook page, and through push notifications via the St. Leo app.

It is heartbreaking that we will not be able to celebrate this most important week assembled together; but through the technological mediums available to us,
Fr. Alfred is trying to reach as many people as he can via live streaming Mass. The bishop has instructed his priests in the Diocese to take these measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all clergy and congregations in West Virginia.

Please be assured that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless you!
