How We Began

The Parish of St. Leonard was founded on the feast of Pentecost, May 27, 2007, through a decree of the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Antigonish in Nova Scotia, Canada. The Parish of St. Leonard is the result of an amalgamation of five parishes - Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Agnes, St. Alphonsus, St. Joseph (New Victoria), and St. Michael's - and one mission - St. Joseph (Lingan). Together, community members have combined resources and are working towards a new sense of Church.

Our Mission

To be a visible sign of the Body of Christ in our welcome, witness and celebration of all that we are as People of God.
