Annual FSSP Camping Trip in Canada

Annual FSSP Holy Family camping trip on Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada.

The camp is held at Fintry Provincial Park, on the former estate of Captain J.C. Dun-Waters, the Laird of Fintry.

The trip was a huge success and a highlight of the year for the kids.  Many thanks to the clergy, families, the K of C and all the organizers, Carl, Mark and everyone.  

It was Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn who once said, "To destroy a people you must first sever their roots."  This has been true of the liturgy in many respects.  Latin rite Catholics of today have little or no knowledge of their liturgical roots.  This is problematic.  A turning toward the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite is to make a return to our roots, to the same sources of light and founts of grace that fed our ancestors and the centuries.  It is to know our roots.
