The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree will be located in the Parish life center with ornaments attached for our Christmas families, beginning the weekend of November 27 and 28.
We have 18 families that our St. Leo communities are asked to help with.
It is through you continued generosity that these families will have a special Christmas.
Last year we implemented gift cards as gifts for the families. This has worked wonderfully, so we will continue with gift cards for our families in need.
Your generosity throughout the years has been so appreciated by All!
Our St. Leo faith community is a blessing to so many! It is through our Love of Christ and our neighbors that we are able to help those in need.
Please return the gift cards to the Parish office by Monday December 13th
There will also be a locked brown box in the Parish Life Center for you to drop off the gift cards.
Thank you for your continued support, prayers, and donations to those in need.
Social Justice Committee.
***** Notice *****
The Diocese of Rochester welcomes the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions in New York State, a sign of continued progress to end the pandemic and an answer to our prayers. In light of the Governor’s action, the following guidelines have been issued to our parishes:
— As a continued precaution until further notice: Holy Communion is to be distributed only under one form, namely the Sacred Host. The exchange of the sign of peace can be omitted or only encouraged without shaking or holding hands. Holy water fonts will remain empty. Baptisms continue to use only fresh water for each baptism and the fonts cleaned afterwards. Churches should be kept clean and continue to assure good ventilation by introducing fresh air, whenever possible.
— Parishes should consider offering some “social distancing” seating for those who wish to continue this practice but the general population will not be required to social distance per the state’s recent announcement.
We continue to pray for all those who suffered illness and loss as a result of this tragic pandemic and for all those medical and emergency personnel and other essential workers who so selflessly served our community during this most challenging time.
Please stay safe.
