Welcome to St Leonard’s Church

St. Leonard’s is more than a parish. It is a caring community – a vibrant and healthy family community which recognises that, as part of Christ’s Family we are called to love one another and be a channel of God’s love in Glen Waverley and beyond. This stems from our involvement in the Eucharist Mass on Sunday. We are called to live what we profess to be at Mass.

As a family community we rely heavily on the involvement of our family members to ensure that the complex organisation that makes up a large parish continues to function efficiently – and with heart.
Literally hundreds of parishioners are involved on rosters and on various committees whether it’s for socials or the sacraments, finance or funerals, maintenance or music.

And whether you are a newcomer, or a long-standing member of the parish, we encourage you to discover the heart of the family by getting involved and taking part in some of the parish events or taking on a role in one of the ministries. New faces are always welcome.

There’s bound to be a parish group there just for you and contact people listed will be delighted to hear from you.

So come on! Join in and be part of the family!

Parish Prayer

O God, the creator and giver of all things, bless St. Leonard's Parish in this our united endeavour. Strengthen our faith, grant us the spirit of sacrifice, so that with your grace, we will glorify you, grow in love, and provide for the needs of our parish. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Mission

As part of Christ’s Family we are called to love one another and to be a channel of God’s love in Glen Waverley and beyond.

As such we must open our hearts to God, be united in our outward vision and action, be proud to be seen as Catholics in the community and by all of these, bring hope, happiness and joy to others.

In our prayers this week we remember those who are sick: Bonnie Kett; Amanda Dickinson

PRAYERS FOR THE SICK: We are restarting our list of people who are sick and are requesting parishioners' prayers. The reason for restarting a new list is that sometimes people who were on the list are no longer sick but their name has remained, This year the names will be on our Sunday bulletin and on our website so we are asking for names to be submitted in a different way. We have printed forms which can be completed either by the person who is sick or by someone acting on their behalf (these forms will cover privacy concerns). You will need to nominate how long you would like to be prayed for. Someone having minor surgery may be asking for 6 or 8 weeks. At the end of this time the name will be removed from the list, unless the person asks for the time to be extended. The forms requesting prayers are available in the church foyer or in the parish office. Once completed, please leave the forms in the office or give them to Fr John.

We pray for those whose anniversaries are at this time: Alf Beckwith; Maureen Streefkerk; Frank Clencie; Cyril Jackson; Bernadette Kenou; Andrew Noone; Maureen Harper; Fred Johnson; Antonio Kreminich; Augustine Farrugia; Ruby Glantz; Elizabeth Moldrich; Michael White

PARISH PASTORAL LEADERSHIP TEAM - DISCERNMENT PROCESS: The discernment process has started to find some new members for the PPLT. Parishioners are being asked to think of people who can make a positive contribution to parish life through their participation on the PPLT. Please give any names to Jan Richards or Fr John before 18th February.

Through the contribution of our Family Ministry, parish families having babies baptised in a given month will usually be welcomed at the 10.30am Mass on the first Sunday of that month; they will also be presented with a candle and white stole from the parish for their approaching baptism. It is normal to make an offering on the occasion of baptism.

Usually on the Thursday evening before that first Sunday they will attend a Baptism preparation in ‘The Yarn’ from 7.00pm – 8.00pm.

It means that families must give adequate notice of their intended date of baptism, so that preparation and welcome can be planned.
