Fr. John

Fr. John Leonard, the founding pastor of St. Michael Catholic Church, died on on Friday morning, July 3. His wishes were that his funeral be private. At a date to be determined, St. Michael will hold a memorial for Fr. John, to which all parishioners will be invited. Please keep Juanita Walker, Fr. John's great friend and "co-worker in the vineyard," in your prayers.

From The Pastor

Next week I’ll probably have some time to share with you my experience in Haiti, but this week I want to share a letter from Fr. John Leonard, the founding pastor of St. Michael:

When I was called back to Richmond from Norfolk Catholic by Bishop Sullivan in 1992, it was to begin a third parish for the Diocese.  The land was located on Springfield Road -a large field, home for 4 horses, a small brick rancher and a pond.
I would be visiting Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Mary’s, two well established parishes, to invite those who lived within the new parish boundaries to join us – what a challenge!  On May 31st, we gathered for the first time at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church on Hungry Road (all 150 families) to begin our journey as  “The New Catholic Parish in the West End”. You welcomed the idea of a parish to be formed on the basis of the Documents of Vatican II.  You rolled up your sleeves and did the work.  This was your parish and when I left in 2004, you never missed a beat.
I know there is a better way to do this, but time is not on my side.  I have been diagnosed with stage 4 Liver Cancer.  I want to thank you for all you did as a new faith community – St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church.  You have heard the Word of God proclaimed and brought those words to the 21st Century in all you have done for each other and God’s people wherever there was a need.  You were and are the presence of the Risen Lord in this day and time.
God blessed me by your presence in my life.  I ask that you continue to support Fr. Dan and your community.  Keep me in prayer as I make this last journey to God’s loving arms.
Fr. John E. Leonard
Founding pastor 1992-2004

Peace & Love,
Fr. Dan
