The Leonard Family was an important family as Father Peyton began his ministry in Albany. Cecil Leonard was one of the first people to gather a group to fund raise so that Father Peyton could get the resources to develop his Rosary Ministry. They began their fund raising activities with an Irish Dance at the Ancient Order of Hibernian Hall and celebrated fifty years last year. The Sisters of St. Joseph and many students spent hours preparing Father Peyton's many letters to be sent around the country in support of his Rosary Ministry. The Sisters continue today as strong supporter of the Father Peyton Guild praying for his Canonization.
