Dr. Leyba and Wife Recognized for Ministry

Oct 11, 2007

Newman University Assistant Professor of Chemistry John Leyba, Ph.D., and his wife, Charlene, were featured in the Sept. 28 issue of The Catholic Advance in recognition of the ministering they offer young men in the Sedgwick County Department of Corrections Juvenile Detention Facility.

In the article, the Leybas say that during visits to the facility they talk to a group of five to 11 boys about scripture and the virtues of God. “They minister so much to us,” Charlene adds. “We learn so much from them.” The Leybas are members of Sacred Heart Parish in Colwich, Kan.
