Philosophy Statement

“Christian, recognize your dignity…” – Pope St. Leo the Great

Saint Leo the Great Catholic Church is committed to fostering the Roman Catholic faith embodied by the wisdom, charity and courage of Saint Leo the Great inspired by the charisma of the Institute of the Incarnate Word to whose pastoral care the parish is entrusted.

We are grounded in the Eucharist and the worthy celebration of the sacraments. We are respectful of the Magisterium of the Church as we care for the salvation of all men and women, which the Church as a Mother offers to all. We promote individual and community prayer, the Gospel values, the respect for the dignity of life from conception to natural death and a strong devotion to our Blessed Mother. We are willing to reach out to the poor and everyone who is in need, either materially or spiritually. We are committed to do the work of the new evangelization as we work for the inculturation of the Gospel.
