Celebrating Our 125th!


Once upon a time….

St. Leo the Great Parish began with immigrants and refugee parishioners…

How does one learn English and cope in everyday life with our complex language? St. Leo offers  English as a Second Language classes on Saturday mornings from 9:30-Noon. Coping in our United States society is another matter completely. From where does the biggest assistance come with these two very important cultural adjustments? The children!

All of our immigrant and refugee school-aged children attend various grade, middle, and high schools. By their fast acclimation to the language and direct involvement on a daily basis with American children, they have more occasion to be exposed to our country’s culture, thereby sharing it with their parents and other adults.
