 We need you!   We appreciate you!   We love you! 

Our needs so far exceed our own resources on many levels and we invite you to share your time, talents and treasures to be about the Lord's work with us.

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 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 rely on you without taking you away from your own parish and our hope is that we give to you additional experiences to live the gospel in accord with your own parish mission statement but in ways different from what your parish may be able to offer you. 

Your donation is humbly and gratefully accepted.  Every single gift means everything to us!

 ¡Gracias!    Murakoze!    Thank You! 

We are deeply grateful for your continued and generous support. Our St. Leo the Great parish community promises to remember you and your loved ones in our private prayer, as well as in our communal prayer, which is to say that we are praying for you all the time. May our gracious God fill you with every blessing!

Dear Friend(s) of St. Leo,

Salt and Light – In Chapter 5 of Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus calls his disciples “salt and light.” He doesn’t say you should be like salt or you should be like light. He says you are salt and you are light.

The Prophet Isaiah suggests that we are the best that God wants us to be when we put into action the corporal works of mercy. We invite you to join us in being “salt and light” by helping St. Leo’s carry out our mission of sharing God`s love through ministries of serving and being present in our urban neighborhoods, while focusing on the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.   

Our needs far exceed our own resources and we invite you to share your time, talents and treasures to be about the Lord's work with us.  Please join us in answering Jesus’ call to love our neighbors as ourselves. Here are some ways you can help:

o   Make a donation by cash, check or online.

o   Your weekly, monthly, or quarterly gift helps maintain us throughout the year.  Sustaining gifts are most welcome and are tax deductible.

o   Remember a Loved One.  Your gift to St. Leo’s is a caring way to honor or remember a special person, or mark a special occasion. 

o   Gifts-In-Kind including food items, toiletries, and wish list items are just a few of the useful and practical items that help us assist those in most need.

o   Give a gift of stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have increased in value.  You can deduct the entire value from your taxable income and avoid the capital gains tax.

o   Volunteer!  Be sure to check us out on our Web Page at:, and/or Facebook at:, and please spread the word about us to your family and friends

o   Without a doubt, your ongoing prayers are much needed and most appreciated! 

We count on your financial support as much as we count on the support of our parishioners.  Whether you are able to increase what you have been giving or remain consistent, or if this is the first time, we ask that you do so desiring to help us give thanks for all the good that the Lord is doing.  Our St. Leo the Great parish community promises to remember you and your loved ones in our private prayer, as well as in our communal prayer, which is to say that we are praying for you all the time.

 May God bestow upon you all His good grace, abundant blessings and the glory of Christ.
