St. Leo Youth Ministry
“Be Who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire!” ~ St Catherine of Siena


Youth Minister- Mrs. Judie Kuhlman- "Ms. Judie"

St Leo’s has been a thriving faith community for families to grow and share their faith with their children.  “The future of the world and the Church passes through the family” (Familiaris Consortio, #79). At St Leo’s, we have created many ways for the children of our parish family to grow in Christ’s love.
