The sexual interference charge is because one of the victims was under 16 years of age.
Léger, who used to lead Holy Family Parish and founded Teen Stop Jeunesse, will be sentenced early next week and his name added to the national sex offender registry.
He remains free on bail.
Léger was arrested earlier this year after three males between the ages of nine and 18 came forward. Two were attacked in the 1980s, while the third occurred between 2002 and 2004.
