We Are Celebrating Public Masses

We are happy to welcome back parishioners to public weekend with many safety and cleaning steps taken to make the environment as safe as possible. We've had more than enough room for everyone who wants to attend!

Please keep in mind

Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki has dispensed Catholics from the obligation of attend Mass through August 2 and our live-stream Mass at 9:15am Sunday can be seen on our Facebook page. At the same time, he directed parishes to use a "Catholic Comeback Matrix" with three phases of activity based on current health conditions and recommendations.

We have been shaping children at St. Leonard School spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically in Muskego for nearly 60 years! Our academics will challenge your K3-Grade 8 child, who will thrive in our nurturing environment with caring teachers, small class sizes and more as we live out our faith.

Check out this article about one parent's testimony on how at-home schooling taught him the value of Catholic education!

Finally, did you know . . . 

-- We began a K3 class in fall 2019! Learn All About It Here!

-- St. Leonard's K4 is much more learning for less money for families seeking a 9-hour day! We are the least-expensive option when compared with all the Muskego-Norway School District community sites. And during that more affordable, 9-hour day, we offer more than two times the instructional time.

-- St. Leonard School participates in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program!  Do not let tuition be a deciding factor for an excellent education.  Go to DPI's Choice information page or call the school office at 262-679-0451 for more information.

 

Do You Or Someone You Know Need Help?

Our collection of food for people in need will move back into our church halls as it had been before public Masses ended. Items may be dropped off before weekend Masses even if you are not attending Mass. Please do not leave food outside the church doors - animals find it! Thank you for your past generosity.
 
Please call the parish office at 262-679-1773 to arrange a time to get food from our well-stocked Human Concerns pantry or get other assistance through our local St. Vincent de Paul Society at the parish office, 262-679-1773.

Please Ignore Scam Requests That Appears To Be From Father Dan

Parishioners sometimes let Father Dan that they receive scam emails or texts that appeared to be from him asking for gift cards. These requests are NOT from Father Dan. Please disregard them completely.

Never give money in response to a text or email without verifying that it is legitimate. This scam is affecting nearly every church and every pastor.

Pray for the healing and conversion of those who seek to profit by scams or fraud. Just imagine how much better our world would be if they used their time for something good!
