Elder, Fr. Leonard, SCJ, 76, Holly Springs, MS, March 6, 2018 - He served at Christ the Redeemer, first as vicar and late as pastor, from 1999-2004.  He was much beloved at Christ the Redeemer, and fostered many new ministries that still serve today, including Eucharistic Adoration.  Most of all, he was a kind and gentle soul to all he met.  Raised in Kentucky, Fr. Leonard entered the novitiate for the Sacred Heart of Jesus Fathers, but instead of professing his first vows, he enlisted in the US Air Force.  After four years of service to his country, he returned to the seminary and professed vows as a Religious Brother in 1967.  As a Brother, he served for nine years as a missionary in Zaire (now, the Democratic Republic of Congo).  He returned to the US and earned his M.Div. at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology in 1996.  He was ordained shortly after, and served first at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church and then at Christ the Redeemer.  After the Sacred Heart Fathers returned Christ the Redeemer to the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, he served as pastor at St. Joseph Church in Holly Springs, MS, from 2004 to 2017, before retiring.  He was still ministering there part-time at the time of his death.  Fr. Leonard said that what he enjoyed most about his years in Africa "were the challenges; learning new cultures, languages, and the daily struggles to overcome the lack of almost everything I was accustomed to using.  However, joined with those challenges were discovering a people eager to celebrate God's love and to share in their lives and struggles."  In 2014 he returned to the Congo when SCJs from the around the world came together to remember and celebrate the lives of 28 members of the Priests of the Sacred Heart who were martyred during the country's Simba Revolution.
