Twice a month from September through April, our community gathers for refreshments and fellowship after all weekend Masses. “Under the Oak” is an opportunity for us to connect with one another and to welcome visitors. Here, you can ask questions, get information about our Church family, and sign up for programs and events.

  • New to our community? Just passing through? Under the Oak is a perfect place to check us out. Be sure to introduce yourself to one of our volunteers (they’ll be wearing distinct, dry-erase name tags).

  • Interested in volunteering in this ministry? Contact karen@stleolafayette.com.

For our parish’s Sunday celebrations to be most fruitful, we need to make time to gather, celebrate, and connect after Mass. The Eucharist is not a private, anonymous experience, but the gathering and celebration of a family.
