Welcome to St. Leo
Respect Life News
Now through Nov. 2nd: 40 Days for Life
St. Leo parish volunteers will be praying outside the Planned Parenthood on 93rd and Maple Sts. from 11:00am to 1:00pm on all Saturdays during the Fall 40 Days campaign.Look for sign ups in the commons or email Lynn Weist at Lweist@cox.net.
40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through prayer fasting and constant vigil.
