Welcome to Saint Leo's Catholic Church !
We are the Community of God's people based in Ikeja Lagos Nigeria, working through the Catholic Faith by the Grace of the Holy Spirit, with the intercession of The Blessed Mother Mary to proclaim the message of Christ's Salvation to mankind.
At St. Leo's, the Holy Mass is celebrated at 6:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on week days and at 6:30 a.m.; 8:30 a.m.; 11:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Sundays.
We will be delighted if you will join us to worship at Toyin Street or at Blessed Tansi Agidingbi or perhaps at St. John Paul II, Adeniyi Jones Avenue Ikeja Lagos.
A Message from the Parish Priest
My dear parishioners of St. Leo’s Parish, I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I wish to address this message to you in these trying times. Our country Nigeria is in crisis. The danger is real and grave. We need to take it seriously.
That is why we should cooperate with the government and hearken to the directives of our Archbishop. With the help of God and the cooperation of all of us, this danger too shall pass away. But we must remember, ‘Heaven helps those who help themselves’.
We are called upon to make sacrifices that will disrupt even our normal way of practising our faith. It has to do with ‘Social Distancing’; people not coming in close contact with one another. Failure to do that can facilitate the spread of the dreaded and dreadful coronavirus.
In response to the directive of the State Government that people should not gather in groups of more than 20 persons and in compliance with our Archbishop’s directive to suspend all public celebrations of the Holy Mass until further notice, please take note of the following:
There will be no Masses on Sundays and Weekdays in any church within our parish.
But please bear in mind that we priests will be celebrating private Masses for your intentions and for the quick deliverance of our nation and the world from this deadly virus.
The church and the chapel will always remain open for parishioners to come and pray.
You are highly encouraged to come at your convenience to pray.
Pray also in your homes for yourselves and our nation and the world.
If you can, please follow the Archbishop’s Mass on Sundays on television on Lumen Christi (DSTV Channel 350) and EWTN (Channel 348).
Please try and keep safe and well, all of you. God bless you all!
May our Blessed Mother Mary, Health of the Sick, intercede for us. Amen.
Msgr. John Aniagwu
