The Order of St. Bernadette of Antioch is under the Bishop protector and Constitution of the Australian Church of Antioch while still retaining it's independence.
Archbishop Leonie works on documenting information & studies on behalf of The Australian Church of Antioch. In addition she devotes much of her time to counselling using a system of birthdates and numbers, and also often working with drug & alcohol addicted people in addition to also doing healings & exorcisms. She is also involved with clergy training and Ordinations in her private chapel.
Abp Leonie is also involved with the prisoner rehabilitation program that ACoA runs. The Australian Church of Antioch was approached many years ago by the Department of Corrections to facilitate such a program and we feel we have made many inroads in this area.
Due to ill health over the last couple of years Abp Leonie has had to reduce her "out in the community" ministry and has turned to mostly phone and internet contact and teaching.
