Stories of Our Elders

We invite you to watch the documentary, "Stories of Our Elders" prepared by the sons and daughters of our Kirundi population about their parents' journey.

St. Leo the Great Catholic Church in North Fairmount has become a haven for a diverse population of refugees, immigrants and native Cincinnatians. Read more about the church and its Burundian refugee parishioners at

St. Leo's Youth Group Goes Kayaking!

On Aug 30, 2014, fourteen youth and six adults, mostly from St. Leo the Great Catholic Church in Cincinnati, OH, spent 4 hrs kayaking the Whitewater River.

St. Leo the Great Parish is so incredibly proud of two of our parish members, Alexandre Marembo and Gilbert Nzoyisaba, who just returned from Washington DC where they were members of one of six Red Cross groups from around the US honored for their work on a video: 
"Innocence to Evil."  

The Cincinnati Red Cross is one of eight chapters that participated in the International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Action Campaign Pilot Program. Students near participating chapters could create IHL teams to teach their peers about humanitarian law. Two Cincinnati teams won the competition for projects they created and traveled to Washington May 31-June 2 to collect their awards and participate in the first National IHL Youth Symposium. The Cincinnati chapter will participate in the competition again next year.
