Holy Family Floor Hockey League
Friday Evenings 7:00PM to 11:00PM September thru June
Floor hockey is an integral part of Holy Family parish, the young men are part of a brotherhood that teaches them leadership, sportsmanship, friendship, and “Manitou”, an Indian word meaning spirituality.
They are very much part of our Sunday liturgy, they help Father Baxter serve Mass, run the audio visuals and sit in their own special section. Floor hockey has been a part of our parish since 1965 and continues to this day, fathers now bring and watch their sons play every Friday night.
The league is made up of 50 boys aged from 13 to 17 years old, divided among 4 teams along with about 15 volunteers. Initially the boys that attended were from the neighbourhood, now they come from all over Montreal and surroundings.
Holy Family is all about the activities for young boys from Floor Hockey to Camp Caritas. They are thought leadership, sportmanship and freindship. Our Parishiners come from near and far and are deeply implicated in parish life.
Summer Sports Camp with a Difference
What and Where
Camp Caritas is a Christian summer camp for 13 to 17- year-old-boys. Located next to Lake Labelle in the Quebec Laurentians, Caritas was founded by Father John Baxter in the 1970s. It has evolved from a small parish type camp to a fully organized camping facility and it is now incorporated as a non-profit corporation. The clientele come from every district of Montreal and surrounding municipalities. The majority of teenagers attending Caritas are Catholic, but the camp welcomes boys from any religious or ethnic background.
The purpose and goal of Caritas is to reach out and establish a place of contact with today's teenagers. The camp's program is designed to attract, challenge and present more positive life values for today's teenagers. The entry point that Caritas has into the young person's world is through sports and challenging Outward Bound Activities. The sports program and outdoor activities are serious and well organized. Through these activities, we communicate vital human, spiritual and fraternal values. Caritas shows young people how to respect themselves and others; to see value in everyone, whether winner or loser. Each camper that goes to Caritas needs a top quality: the openness to grow.
