February 2021 Family of the Month - The Leo Marier Family

Dottie and Leo Marier

Leo Marier’s family have been parishioners at Saint John Neumann since 1986. Leo became a Knight and joined the Family of Man Council in 1992. We want to recognize Leo for faithfully and persistently directing our Council’s attention to numerous Culture of Life activities throughout the month of January.

He and his wife, Dottie, have been very active in the Parish Pro-Life Ministry for many years, and she has made almost every Pro-Life March in DC since they arrived here. Leo has also been singing in the choir for 34 years, and served a term on the Parish Council. They have served as the Parish contact for the diocese office for Vocations for the past two years. Dottie previously taught Faith Formation and currently helps with the Funeral Ministry.

Their four adult children, Joe, John, Theresa Weiler and Lisa Gullikson, participated in parish plays, talent shows and sang with the children’s choir while growing up here, and three of them continue as cantors with their current parishes.

We are grateful for the service of such an exemplary Catholic Family. Our congratulations and best wishes to the Marier Family!
