According to Paradise News, the man’s ordination happened on June, 24, 2020 in Limoilou Quebec in a Diocese of Saint-François-de-Laval. Many people describe him as a very friendly man who gets along with people easily.
Leandre said his tattoos are of very religious significance, adding he had two years before the catholic church ordained him.
Leandre is also one of the youngest priests in the diocese who are really going against traditions. A graduate of philosophy and theology at Laval University, the man worked for six years as an engineer.
The new priest added that he had the call to become a priest at the young age of 18 but decided to follow a different path. The priest said that he, however, was very much involved in church activities when he was growing up.
He spoke about how he went ahead to bag a master’s degree in material engineering. Reminiscing the good old days, the amiable priest said he really loved his job as an engineer.
When the priest’s photos resurfaced on Twitter, tweeps had a lot to say about his looks.

Below are some of the reactions:

@AzubikeTobi also said: “There are Jamaican priests, born with natural dreads. Even some Nigerians are born with that. Pastoral calling doesn’t discriminate your hairstyle.”
@VickieRankie said: “This tweet made me remember how I train, inspire youth in my church, till we had opportunity to be in charge of every 3rd Sunday of every month as youth Sunday, I was shocked when the pastor said I cant preach on the altar just because I had beard…this is The Apostolic Church.”
