Tags: faithful, family, youth, District of Canada

The return of Tradition within the Church is one of the key intentions of our 4th Rosary Crusade, as launched by Bishop Fellay.  This undertaking seems to be a great challenge, out of reach for human eyes.  But are there any specific tools available to us, which will make it possible with the help of the grace of God?  One of them is the Legion of Mary.  Within the Society of St. Pius X in Canada, we have two active praesidia, one in Toronto, and one in Langley.
