Many proud parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters, classmates, neighbours, co-workers, here. This type of event really makes a person feel like a welcome member of a community.

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.
