“Grace before meals...dot com!” For all who came out to see Father Leo on January 15th, you’ll recognize this as one of his signature phrases. It was a wonderful event, coupled with a special cooking class on January 16th in our Columbia Room. Just being around Father Leo and witnessing his infectious enthusiasm for God and feeding His people (another trademark of Father Leo is his insight that the quickest way to a person’s heart is through his stomach) was a source of joy and hope for all who participated. And the event raised around $6,000.00 for Sister Sabina which puts the final touches on her order’s convent. If you’re interested in learning more about Father Leo’s unique and impressive work, please check him out at gracebeforemeals.com!
