Tuktoyaktuk, part 5: Father’s House and the St.Vincent-de-Paul

This is Tuktoyaktuk’s ”St.Vincent de Paul” community store, which allows people to donate and salvage items. It’s also a cozy place for people to take shelter from the cold.

The churches in Tuktoyaktuk and especially the Catholic Church with resident sister Faye Trombley are very active in Tuktoyaktuk.

Here is Sister Faye (left) plucking geese with a girl from the community, on the front steps of the Catholic building called Father’s House.

  1. I love an atmosphere in the store and a stove ! Looks so warm there ! Good luck to all people donating.

  2. Oh wood stove marvel
    Warm my hands
    Warm my heart
    Till they dull
    My poor aching bones
