The St. Leo Preservation Society is a 501.c.3 charitable organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the buildings of St. Leo Church and to further the charitable works of the parish.

Founded in 1903, St. Leo Church was closed on July 1, 1999. However, efforts are being made to restore the church and maintain its church community.

Please join together for the 4th Biennial Marian Concert for an evening of song, short meditations and prayer dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes in this Year of Divine Mercy. Let us join together to honor her holy motherhood and beg her intercession on behalf of a world in great need.

Several of the groups performing are: St Maryís three choirs (Handbell, Contemporary, Combined choruses St. Mary Traditional Choir and the Mendelssohn Liedertafel), Holy Family Choir, The Catholic Polish Community, Catholic Korean Community, and St. Patrick Church Choir and soloist, Cecile Smith. Between choirs we will be graced with one of our newer priestís, Father Nicholas Droll, meditations on Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes in the Year of Divine Mercy.

We will begin the evening by crowning our beautiful Mother. At the end there will be an opportunity for you to put your written, folded petitions into a basket which we will burn later that evening, sending your prayers to our Heavenly Mother and Her Son, Jesus.

Many of you have attended the Marian Concerts in the past and you know what a wonderful evening you will have. Please join us with your family and friends and pray for Peace in our World!

As in the past, any donations made that evening will be split with the St. Leo Seminarian Endowment Fund and the Preservation Society.

Our beautiful and historic VonGerichten windows have been repaired and refurbished. Special storm windows have been installed which will ensure that the stained glass windows last for many years to come.

CDs of the concert recorded on January 29, 2012 for the rededication of St. Leo’s organ are now available. Paul Thornock performing.

CDs are $20.00 plus $2.00 for shipping; all proceeds benefit the Preservation Society. Email to reserve your copy today.
