WHO WE ARE AT LEAVEN LEAVEN is an independent Intentional Eucharistic Community that gathers regularly to celebrate a Eucharist rooted in Catholic tradition while incorporating the vision and teaching of Vatican II. Our liturgies are prepared and presided over by our members, with full and active participation by all who join us in this prayer. We take to heart the teachings of Jesus and the call for justice in Catholic social teaching. “Through sharing liturgical life and mutual support for one another, members are strengthened to live Gospel-centered lives dedicated to spiritual growth and social commitment.” (Quote from the Intentional Eucharistic Community website.)
A RENEWAL OF SACRED PROMISES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY I will live simply, so that others may simply live; I will share my abundance with others freely and without reserve. I will be a good steward of my life, my family, and my spiritual community. I will revere and respect Mother Earth. I will make choices that reflect care of her freely given resources so that there will be enough for all, everywhere in my world. I will take care to see God’s love here on Earth and reflect that love to others.
