My dear Sisters and Brothers in the Lord,

Hello! I am Father Anthony M. Bozeman, SSJ, as pastor of this great parish, it is my esteemed pleasure to welcome you to our website. Saint Raymond and Saint Leo the Great was founded on July 12, 2008. Two faith communities have come together as one here on Paris Avenue. Our parish is a faithful faith-filled community that is steeped with strong traditions, rich history and enduring faith. As you browse through the website, you will see a myriad of social, spiritual, and educational ministries. Our greatest attribute is that Jesus the Risen Savior is the center of all our endeavors. My hope is that as you peruse through our site, you will get the same “dose of the Holy Ghost” that leaves as indelible mark on our visitors, occasional guests, and faithful members! Please feel free to leave comments.

May God Continue to Bless You,

~Father Anthony M. Bozeman, SSJ
