Random Catholicism & Lost (& Found): St. Leo

This morning, I went to Shaw's Garden to see the DinoQuest exhibit.  While wandering around the Temperate House looking for dinosaurs, I noticed a portico with sign on it.  

Sign Explaining St. Leo Portico

I've been to Shaw's Garden hundreds of times and it never clicked that the portico was from a Catholic school.  Amazing what you find and what you miss if you aren't paying attention.

I did look at satellite maps of the area...St. Leo is in an area of the city that is almost totally deserted. It is just vacant lots where the buildings used to be.
