    As Father Frank continues to embellish on the renovations and the minor details that go unnoticed – perhaps it is time to CELEBRATE the accomplishments of Father Frank and all the parishioners of St. Leo in a Special Liturgy and social event in the very near future?

    How nice to see the church redone. On the 29th of April it will be 55 years since we were married there by Dr. Markle. My father was a parishioner for eighty years and his father before him.

    Best wishes

    I have belonged to this parish for 57 years! Attended St. Leo’s school. Renovations are outstanding. Can’t wait to see the completion! Sure need to have a grand celebration!

    Wow! The church is gorgeous! Love the new pews, the tile work the altar — well, basically everything about it! Must come and visit soon to see it in person!

    At what year was your Church built?

    1. The original parish was born in 1909. The first church pictured was on the opposite side of Royal York Road, (called Church Street at the time). The present church was built in 1954; according to the cornerstone laid by James Cardinal MacGuigan.
      There are quite a number of renovations/additions to be made still. The ceiling needs to be insulated. Several new stained glass windows are in construction. A few existing stained glass windows at the back of the church will be restored and protected. The Stations of the Cross are being replaced with icons; I believe 5 remain to be done. Large icons/tryptychs behind the altar and to either side of the sanctuary are being created. The floor will be refinished/re-tiled. The status of the pews and kneelers is undecided (re-finish or replace).
      We are pleased with the project and extremely grateful for the generosity of the parishioners and their love for St. Leo’s Chuch.
