St. Leo Christmas Project—Supplies for
Essential Pregnancy Services
This year, our St. Leo Christmas Project will be assisting Essential Pregnancy
Services. Essential Pregnancy Services (EPS) is a private non-profit providing
assistance to expectant women and parenting families to build a healthy future through support, education, health services, material assistance and referrals.
Instructions: Purchase any of the items from the list on this flyer and drop off your donations in the Social Hall at St. Leo Church beginning now through January 1st. Please note that all items (unless marked differently) need to be brand new. Moms get to go shopping in the baby boutique, so new items are appreciated. Thank you for your help with this.
27th Annual National Night of Prayer for Life
Thursday, Dec. 8th 9:00pm - Midnight
Thursday, December 8th, is the 27th Annual National Night of Prayer for Life. It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception that Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and the unborn, first appeared to St. Juan Diego.The National Night of Prayer for Life honors Our Blessed Mother and prays through Her intercession for the establishment of a Culture of Life, protection for the Church from persecution, and asks our Lord to Revive our Land.
St. Leo will have Eucharistic Adoration from 9:00pm to Midnight, Thursday the 8th. Host couples will be present for each hour of the silent prayer vigil. Please consider coming for an hour or 30 minutes. You may want to come especially during the Hour of Unity, from 11:00pm - 12 Midnight, when we will be united in prayer with churches across our country’s 4 time zones to end abortion and to restore God's blessings of Life and Religious Liberty in America.
The National Night of Prayer for Life is a wonderful way to help you and your family keep the proper perspective this holiday season and make your Advent special. Suggested prayers and reading will be available that night in the chapel.
