Youth Ministry

Saint Leo’s Middle School Youth Ministry

Welcome to Saint Leo’s Youth Ministry, serving parish kids in grades 6th through 8th.  The theme this year is “To The Heights,” a reference to Bl. Pier Giorgio’s desire to grow ever closer to God. This year we will focus on what it means to be a leader and how the Beatitudes exemplify the greatest leader: Christ. Gatherings are designed to be fun with small group discussion and games meant to help unpack the message. To RSVP for upcoming events, select the link:
