HopeStone Catholic Formation Inc.

is a Registered Charity in Canada!


Our mission is for the Glory of God.

What influenced HopeStone to begin?

Peter and Stacey met in 2004 at St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto, while completing their Youth Ministry Certificate program. By the end of the two year course, Peter and Stacey knew that by the grace of God, they would not only one day be married, but that they were called to minister to young people together. The Leitmanns were married in 2009 and continue to discern God’s will for their lives and ministry and are prepared to fearlessly follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

Why Donate to HopeStone?

We need support to offer new and accessible programs for our church community. The pandemic has hit our ministry hard and we are trying really hard to find new and innovative ways to reach our domestic church community. With your help, we are able to dedicate time and resources to these new means of programming like our Virtual Offerings. Often there are situations where youth or young adults want to attend program or retreats and cannot afford to for whatever reason.  Your contribution will help us assist any parish or family that needs assistance. Help us bring others the opportunity to experience something they might not.

What is the HopeStone Dream?

The long term goal is to open up a Catholic Retreat Centre. It has been a dream and calling to do so for over 15 years. God doesn’t always reveal HOW we are going to get there; He just places a desire and drive in us to find a way – and He provides. We hope to have a centre to run retreats, camps, community meetings, organization meetings and much more for the entire Catholic Community. We can only do this with the generosity of others. We will continue to post and make reference to our progress as this happens. Today we will run retreats from your parish – in the future we will have a place to call home and welcome all HopeStone families.
