The countdown is on for what could be one of the most unusual hockey games Parry Sound has ever witnessed.

On Wednesday, the Flying Fathers Hockey team will be in town to take on the Knights of Columbus-Shriners Eager Beavers at the Bobby Orr Community Centre to raise money for three of Parry Sound’s charitable organizations.

Proceeds of the event will go to the Hope Pregnancy Support Centre, Hospice West Parry Sound, and Habitat for Humanity, Parry Sound Chapter.

Bringing antics and comedic behaviour that are described as being more like the Harlem Globetrotters than Catholic priests, the Flying Fathers have been known to bring a horse on the ice and sprinkle holy water on their opponents.

Parry Sound Town Councillor and Chair of the Triple H Charity Challenge Advertising Committee Doug McCann says there will be an addition to the Flying Fathers roster.


Moose meat will be on the menu as the Knights of Columbus will be cooking up Moose Patties with mushroom sauce and the Shriners will be preparing Moose Chill.

Entertainment will be provided after the game by the Mark MacFee Band.

It all takes place Wednesday, February 20th at the Bobby Orr Community Centre in Parry Sound.

Doors open at 5:30 pm and the first puck drops at 6:30 pm.
