Covid-19 Information and Process for Mass
  • The obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation continues to be suspended as long as the pandemic continues.
  • All COVID-19 positive persons, those who are symptomatic, and those living with them, must stay home.

  • Persons over age 65 and those with preexisting health conditions should continue to stay home during Phase II and avoid public gatherings, including in church.
  • Each person must remain 6 feet away in all directions from others not in the same household.

  • Face masks are strongly urged for all assembly members (but not for those under age two, according to the CDC, since it may put them at risk of suffocation).

  • Congregational singing is temporarily discontinued, since singing expels more respiratory particles than speaking does.

  • Communion will occur at the end of mass and members will exit after they receive.

These are the key points from the official guidance provided by the Archdiocese.  That document can be viewed at the following link:  Covid-19 Archdiocese Mass directives

Best Little Parish this Side of Heaven

St. Leonard of Port Maurice was established in 1941 for African American Catholics; we are a multi-racial parish of about 100 families. We offer a Sunday Mass at 10:00 a.m.


All Are Welcome Here

Our doors are always open to you. We are a welcoming and affirming parish. We offer worship on an intimate scale, accompanied by spirited congregational singing led by our gifted pianist, and followed by hearty fellowship after every Sunday Mass.

Our Mission

The Church of St. Leonard of Port Maurice believes that, with our worship and fellowship experience and faith as our base, we can achieve social justice through education and outreach that guides us on our Christian journey in the community.
