Because of You

St. Leo’s struggle and its gift is its poverty. In order to continue and expand its mission and ministry to the community and our immigrant and refugee parishioners we need to reach out to others to help us through prayer, finances, and service. Through God’s grace it becomes mutual blessing. And so we thank…. 

Many, many thanks to Immaculate Heart of Mary Church and School for their abundant donation of new and gently used coats of all sizes.



Many, many thanks to the Knights of Columbus at St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish for their bountiful donation of 96 brand new children's coats.


Many, many thanks to St. John the Evangelist Church, West Chester, for their generous donation of dozens of back packs, each filled with a student bible, rosary, cross-shaped carabiner clip, large notepad, small notepad, pens, pencils, markers and snacks for St. Leo's youth group to attend a youth retreat.

Many, many thanks to St. Susanna Parish for preparing 25 turkeys and all the fixings for the Thanksgiving Dinner served immediately following Mass at St. Leo's on Thanksgiving Day.  It was delicious!



Many, many thanks to the Knitting Ladies at St. Joseph Church, North Bend, for the large supply of beautiful hand knitted hats of many sizes, shapes and colors.



Many, many thanks to Food Pantry volunteer, Betty Nagel, who generously knitted dozens of colorful scarves in a variety of widths and lengths for our guests.

Cash to Cover Operating Expenses is Essential in order to continue to provide the many spiritual and corporal works of mercy that St. Leo’s provides for the residents of the struggling neighborhood of North Fairmount, we must be able to turn on the lights and electronic equipment, plug in the freezers and refrigerators in the food pantry, heat the buildings, answer the phone, access running water, repair and maintain our physical plant and compensate our small, dedicated and determined staff.  Without these we simply cannot answer Jesus’ call to love our neighbors as ourselves.

St. Leo's Stained Glass Window Fund

Thank you again and again! 

Many, many thanks to all of you who supported our Stained Glass Window Appeal.  We simply can’t thank you enough!                      

We are thrilled to announce that as of September 1st, we have reached our goal of $25,000 to restore our stained glass windows that were in most need of repair.           

Due to your overwhelming generosity, we have received enough funds to make additional fixes to all of the windows in order to prevent further decline and to keep them all in good condition for years to come.

All of us at St. Leo’s are truly, deeply grateful!

Many, many thanks to you our many dedicated benefactors, boosters, advocates, volunteers, and parish and school partners. It is your most generous financial support, bountiful responses to our wish list, abundant gift-in-kind donations of materials and services, and countless dedicated volunteer hours that allows St. Leo the Great Parish to exist.



It is you who allow us to build the Kingdom of God by making it possible to turn on the lights and electronic equipment, plug in the freezers and refrigerators in the food pantry, heat the buildings, answer the phones, access running water, repair and maintain our physical plant and compensate our small, dedicated and determined staff.  Without these we simply cannot answer Jesus’ call to love our neighbors as ourselves.

We could never do it on our own and hope all of you out there who volunteer, encourage, support, pray, and/ or help sustain St. Leo know it is so very treasured and cherished. With hope and your help, it makes it all happen! It takes a village, as they say!

With gratefulness and gratitude, thank you for being our hope and part of our St. Leo Village!
