Christian Formation

Our St. Leonard parish mission: Growing as Catholics in the image of Jesus Christ in Worship, Formation and Community.

WELCOME to the St. Leonard Christian Formation Office!




We are located at the midsection of the St. Leonard campus where the school building meets the Parish Center (Gathering Space).



We have excellent Christian Formation programs ready for your child, with opportunities from age 6 months through Grade 11! All of us at St. Leonard want to partner with you to help your child to grow in faith, knowledge and love of Jesus.

Our Christian Formation programs offer the opportunity to not only learn about faith and Catholic tradition but to also put faith into action by assisting those in need. This teaches children from an early age to respond with compassion to others and to treat each individual with dignity and respect.

Please check out all the tabs in this Christian Formation area of our website. We're happy to answer any questions.

A Word about Sunday Mass

We make time for things that are important to us, such as friends, family, sports and other interests. To help us grow in our relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the Catholic Church tells us that we have an obligation to go to Mass every Sunday. It is an obligation that most of us fulfill willingly, but many people don't understand why the church requires this of us. In the Third Commandment, God tells us to "Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day." For the Jews, the Sabbath was Saturday; Christians, however, transferred the Sabbath to Sunday, the day of Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead. The Church tells us that we have an obligation to fulfill the third Commandment by refraining from unnecessary work on Sunday and by participating in the Mass, our chief form of worship as Christians.

From the earliest days of the Church, Christians have understood that being a Christian isn't a private matter. We are called to be Christians together; while we can and should engage in the private worship of God throughout the week, our primary form of worship is public and communal, which is why Sunday Mass is so important.

We are called to grow closer to the Father, Son and Holy Spririt every year of our lives! Attending weekly Mass is a great start. When we deepen our faith even more with purposeful prayer time, scripture studies and faith-based discussions with other parishioners, we grow more and more able to share our faith with others. This is what Jesus calls us to do at every age.
