It has been our privilege to bring glory to The Lord. May others see His Light shining through us and be drawn through His goodness.

Thank you to Fr. April. Without his guidance and his blessing on this second year, this mandate would not have taken place. We thank our Parish Pastoral Council for their confidence in us to carry forward the Youth Mission for the second of a three year commitment. We thank the wonderful and giving parish community for ALL the contributions bestowed on us to carry forward.  We thank you for your prayers, gracious words and love that carried us through.  Mahsi Cho to Fr. Wes and our sister parish 'Our Lady of Providence RC Mission Church' together with all the kind people of Fort Providence, North West Territories for your friendship and the willingness to all grow spiritually by sharing the love of God with us.

Even though we were awakened to a slower pace of life that is different, ultimately we are all trying to accomplish the same fundamentals such as liturgy, faith formation, sacramental prep, building & maintenance, youth ministry, all the basics that it takes to run a viable parish.

Fr. Wes participated in an audio conference based out of Yellowknife on organizing and forming a youth advisory committee on the future of the youth ministry in the diocese. This was only possible through modern technology: Skype and Facebook. Fr. Wes was able to reach out even further than the four corners of the diocese.  Fr. Wes' wish is to connect with St. Philip Neri PPC four times per year via video conference or Skype.

We have learned that a mission trip allows you to be engaged with the community through service and outreach. This, along with our Faith, personal commitment and energy, is something we bring back in our hearts to share with our own faith community.

As we walk the road of ministry together, we are eternally grateful to God that he has chosen us to be one of his people.

Parish Mission ~ your servants in Christ, Debra and Randy

    Though it may be relatively easy "reading" the gospel, you, Debra and Randy, have shown us how to "live the gospel." How fortunate we are at St. Philip's to have you as part of our spiritual community. Thank you so much for representing our church community up North and keeping the 'link' to Ft. Providence and Father Wes alive. Dziekuje bardzo!

    Very creative writings from both you and Deb. Thanks for the inspiring stories you shared from Ft Providence and all the northwest communities. I read them and loved them. Just about as if I was there with you. Beautiful job from both of you. Can't wait to hear more. Congradulations and thanks for all of your great work. Took lots of energy and Faith to do what the 2 of you have done. Thank you Randy and Debra. God Bless You
