Masks Required

On August 17, 2021 Bishop Brennan sent a letter to all pastors in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston asking that each pastor meet with his Parish Council regarding the wearing of masks. Bishop Brennan stated that he highly recommends wearing masks in the buildings, but would like each parish to make that decision at this time. 

St. Leo Parish Council met and unanimously voted to require masks for everyone in the building, effective immediately. This includes wearing masks during Mass, during Faith Formation sessions, when visiting the office, and any events held inside.

***New this fall***

We are thrilled to announce that St. Leo will be offering the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program for 3-6 year old children! Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori method program designed to engage children and encourage a personal relationship with Jesus. At this time, we have openings in our Monday 4 PM session. Please email Michele Bui ([email protected]) as soon as possible if you are interested in registering your child for this program.

Diocesan Survey

Bishop Brennan is inviting your input on an upcoming diocesan-wide survey regarding a broad range of topics relating to the way we live and experience our faith across the entire diocese. As our shepherd, the Bishop desires to listen to God’s people. This will assist him in developing a deeper understanding of the hearts, minds, and needs of the faithful. ALL are highly encouraged to participate! Parishioners will have the option of completing the survey via this link: https://dwc.org/pastoral-needs-survey/ or manually via a paper survey. You can pick up a paper copy of the survey in the parish office or contact Lisa Feeley and one can be mailed to you.
Completing the survey should take 7 to 10 minutes. Please complete surveys by September 19. Paper copies can be returned to the parish office.
