The word “minister” means to serve or to give. In the context of the Christian community “ministry” means to give generously for love of God. Ministry is one way we proclaim the Living Word of God. Our actions and behaviours tell others they are truly loved. In experiencing this love people know that Jesus is present among us, and that He loves them deeply and personally.

St. Leonard’s is blessed with a community of Christians who carry out the work of the Lord through their Ministries and action groups. In a parish community everyone is called out to share their God given gifts and talents with one another through Liturgy, Sacramental Life, Spiritual Growth and Community Service.
St. Leonard’s welcomes you to participate in any of its Ministries and Service Organizations. To find out how you can answer the Lord’s call, please contact our parish office or one of the individual Ministries. We hope that through these ministries St. Leonard’s may become a vibrant part of your Journey to Live Your Faith!

St. Leonard’s is a full participant in the Archdiocese of Ottawa Responsible Ministry Program.

The three primary goals of the program are:

  1. To safeguard, in all respects, all of those to whom we minister. 2. To support parish volunteers and preserve their safety, integrity and reputation. 3. To ensure that we fulfill our duty and obligation as a faith community.

This program requires that all volunteers sign a code of conduct and for more sensitive ministries it may require references and/or police checks.


LOW SENSITIVITY (LS) – no action required

MEDIUM SENSITIVTY (MS) – references required

HIGH SENSITIVITY (HS) – police check required
