The music program at Saint Leo is dedicated to the enrichment of the liturgy with music that complements the Scriptures each week, enriches the celebration of the Mass, and encourages the congregation to participate.

During the coming year, the music program will strive to:

    • Encourage parishioners with musical talent to participate in the music program
    • Encourage participation in the Youth Choir and Teen Choir in order that our youth may learn  to develop their musical skills, participate more fully in the liturgies of our church and learn the music traditions of our faith
    • Provide the congregation with music from the rich wealth of our Catholic tradition
