He was born on May 6, 1953 in Melfort, Saskatchewan, to Joseph and Emma LeGatt. Legatt studied at St. Boniface College (University of Manitoba), graduating in 1974 with his B.A. in Philosophy and French. Following graduation he served as a CUSO (Canadian University Services Overseas) volunteer in Ghana teaching French in a secondary school.
In 1977 he entered Le Grand Séminaire de Québec, and was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Prince Albert on June 19, 1983 by Bishop Blaise Morand. For the next seventeen years (1983–2000) he served in a number of parishes in the diocese, as well as co-ordinator of the Diocesan Liturgical Commission, Director of Vocations and Consultor.
In 2000-2001 he pursued studies at the University of Notre Dame; and on October 5, 2001 he was consecrated as Bishop of Saskatoon in St. Patrick's Church by Bishop Morand, Archbishop James Hayes of Halifax and Archbishop Peter Mallon of Regina. He served the Diocese of Saskatoon for eight years until his appointment as Archbishop of St. Boniface in 2009.
LeGatt's Episcopal motto is Ut Unum Sint (Latin: That They May Be One) and is taken from Chapter 17, Verse 22 of The Gospel According to John.
