Social Concerns Committee

The St. Leo Social Concerns Committee sponsors many events for the benefit of the community.  Some of these activities include: an annual clothing drive, Thanksgiving meal at New Covenant House, Christmas Wish Tree (providing gifts to local organizations), food collections for the New Covenant House food pantry, and an annual Remembrance Mass for parishioners who have lost loved ones.  Please consider joining this worthwhile committee.
