As a parish, we are committed to working together to make Jesus Christ known, loved and served in our families, throughout the Hibbing community and in the world. We are also committed to live as the Lord taught, drawing inspiration from the scriptures and strength from the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Our parish strives to nurture spiritual growth, share the gifts God has given us, and invite others into a relationship with Christ.
We are One Body, One Spirit in Christ.

Annex – St. Leo’s Hall
Peter Kroll, MSE, LMFT
My specific area of practices is as a Marriage and Family therapist but over the years of working mental health my interests clinically have broadened. Particularly, I work in the areas of life transitions, relationship issues, trauma, personal guilt and shame, career stress, codependency, numbing behaviors, panic disorder, self-esteem, and sexual abuse. In my practice I see Adults, adolescents, and children down to age 6. I have spent much of my clinical time also as a Dialectical Behavior Therapist and enjoy working with Personality Disorders. With Families and couples I use a family systems and cognitive behavioral therapy approach. In therapy I strive to increase positive coping skills with my clients to help them live a more healthy effective life. When I am not at the office I am mountain biking, running, and spending time with my family.
Peter is an alumni of Assumption Catholic school and active member in the Duluth Diocese. He has assisted with youth ministry and is a great mentor for Catholic youth.
