Flying Fathers hockey team being resurrected

Long-time Northern Ontario residents may remember the Flying Fathers, a hockey team made up of Roman Catholic priests who played local teams and raised money for charity.  The team folded sometime back, but now a priest in Peterborough is re-forming it and has permission to use the Flying Fathers copyright name.  Like the original Flying Fathers, the latest version of the team will also raise money for charity.  Father Les Costello of South Porcupine and Father Brian McKee first formed the Flying Fathers in 1963.  Costello was a former Toronto Maple Leafs player during the 1940s.  The original Flying Fathers toured Canadian communities for 45 years and over that time raised more than $4 million for charity.
