Annual Appeal

Parish School / PSR Annual Appeal


“We will never deny a Catholic boy or girl a Catholic education due to finance.”

From his arrival in 2008, Father Hahn, our pastor, received the vision that we will never deny a Catholic boy or girl a Catholic education due to finance. That’s why our Annual Appeal, that provides funds to cover the tuition of needy families desiring a Catholic education, is so dear to our hearts here at Saint Leo the Great Catholic School & our PSR (CCD).

In 2011 this program supported 225 students. That number increased to 365+ in 2018. To sustain continued growth and provide a Catholic education to every child in need, we need your help!

Full tuition for a single parish school student is $5,900. The parish subsidizes this amount to $4,630 for practicing Catholic families through the weekly collection. This past year, many donors were able to support one or more full tuition amounts to cover the entire cost of tuition at our parish school for one or more children. Others gave generously as their finances would allow. We thank you all!

We hope you will consider giving a gift equal to the financial blessings you have received by placing our Annual Appeal high on your family’s stewardship priority list!

We invite you to contact Alan Schwartz, Director of Development & Parish Ministries by calling (717) 615-1998 or emailing to find out more about how you can be a personal hero to the boys and girls of Saint Leo’s.
