A Western Rite Parish of ROCOR

St. Leonard Orthodox Church is a church mission of the Western Rite Communities of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia — a semi-autonmous part of the Russian Orthodox Church.  The Western-Rite of the Orthodox Church is a concerted effort by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia among others to pastorally respond to the numerous requests of Western Christians to re-establish the Western Church as it existed prior to the Great Schism.
