Our family, was privileged by God’s grace to have operated CATHOLICLAND for over 15
yrs. with a focus on a children's camp, Youth from far and wide served as counsellors.
Fun, games, music, campfires and a great show of talent is what we encouraged and
enjoyed. 'Test Your Faith' & 'Movies with Morals' were among our unique productions.
It was difficult to move on, but we did so as our children were now older & eager to test
their wings. Now that our 'children have left home' to answer their call; study, work and
one for the seminary, for the Peterborough Diocese, we decided to move closer to GTA
& re-establish a similar Catholic environment of Faith, Fun & Fellowship for families,
youth & young adults.
We 'exchanged' our 40 acres near Barrie, ON (100 kms from Toronto) and our 360
acres in Kirkfield for 75 + 5 acres near Newmarket (50 kms north of Toronto). 4000 ft
on Canal Lake and a creek for a REAL river and grounded cabins for floating houseboats.

able to assist, are welcome to join us for a day, weekend, week or longer. You can assist
