Throughout Lent, Saint Leo Parish will hold
Eucharistic Adoration between the 6:15 and
9am Masses each weekday. Confessions
will be heard on Fridays at 7:00 pm as usual,
but instead of the Holy Hour, we will have
Stations of the Cross at 7:30 pm. Confessions will also be
heard on Wednesdays beginning at 6:30 pm and a Holy
Hour will be observed from 7:00-8:00 pm.
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast and
Every Friday in Lent is a day of Abstinence.
Fast means 1 main meal per day and 2 smaller, meatless
meals for all between the ages of 18 and 59 (inclusive.)
Abstinence means no meat or meat products are to be
eaten. This is applicable to all who are 14 years or older.
These are minimum standards for the observance of the
Lenten penitential period of preparation and no Catholic
may lightly excuse him/herself from them.
—Please remember in your prayers the repose of
the souls of the faithful departed, especially: Marie
Petrini Papa, cousin of Bonnie Gallagher; Judy
Yuri Munive, sister of Carmen Munive; George
Schuld, husband of Silvia Schuld; Earl Frosch,
father of Jo Anne Ratay.

The key to the ministry of the Society of St.
Vincent de Paul is home visitation. Vincentians
go in pairs to the homes of the poor and suffering
after the exhortation of Jesus who sent his
Apostles and disciples two by two to continue the mission.
Frederic and the founding members also came to know
that “No work of charity is foreign to the Society.” Not only
were they called to take care of the physical and material
needs of others (food, shelter, clothing, firewood), they
also became involved with tutoring. No matter what the
demands of poverty are, in every work of charity, members
of the Society are solicitous to the spiritual and moral
welfare of others.
Pope Francis tells us: “The Church must step outside
herself. To go where? To go to the outskirts of existence,
whatever they may be, but she must step out. In this
“stepping out” it is important to be ready for encounterR
Encounter with others. Why? Because faith is an
encounter with Jesus.” How can you use your gift in this
ministry today? Call 703/352-3509 for upcoming
