Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. Jonathon and I had many wonderful years of friendship with Leonard at the Marian Peace Center. Peace~ Mary Lou

  2. We have many fond memories of picketing with Leonard outside the Saginaw Abortion Clinics. He was a faithful warrior in the battle for the unborn. His loving and gentle spirit never wavered even when taunted and once spit upon by pro-abortion advocates. We were blessed to know him. Cal & Trish Zastrow

  3. after my coming back to the Catholic faith I met Leonard for the first time going into Mass. He gave me a rosary. I told him of my conversion. He gave me some advice that is true to this day. From early on in my coming back to the faith I believe that I have 2 guardian angels and one I named Leonard because of this man.
