His Eminence as Vicar for Western Europe has worked diligently in the Vineyard in Western Europe seeking Orthodox Churches to grow the Western European Province.
His Eminence is the founder of Saint Seraphim of Sarov Institute for Orthodox Theology and Pastoral Training.
The action of H.E. was initially totally centred on his desire to create parishes.
The first parish created was that of St Patrick and St Gall in Caen, Normandy with Deacon Michel de Cyrène. With the death of Father Michel, then Father Leonid had to move to the South of France where he created the parish of the Holy Cross and built his wooden chapel. About thirty faithful frequented the parish.
When he had to return to Normandy 20 years later, Mgr Léonid entrusted the chapel to one of his faithful and currently there are meetings and prayer services taking place there and some services when the Father travels .
Established now in Creuse, central France, H.E Archbishop Léonid manages the church with determination in the strict observance of the Orthodox rules defined by the Fathers.
The humanitarian actions were turned towards Ukraine in 2003 and following, in the field of training and specialized relief then and then again towards Cameroon then now towards Ukraine vis-à-vis refugees and asylum seekers
