Summer is short and work days are few
The summer is short in the North, which gives us a window of opportunity to build a new rectory for the Church of the Apostles, in Faro, Yukon, in our home Diocese of Whitehorse.
The old rectory and church are in bad shape, with no sound insulation, leaky roofs and busted windows.
Now, not next week, is the best time to roll up our sleeves and do much-needed construction and repair work.
Getting set to start construction of the rectory

Visitor from the field takes a quick assessment of pending construction work.
The elk herd at Braeburn look on with approval and natural curiosity.
Elk to elk: “Maybe we’ll come back when it’s finished.”
“For now, let’s soak in this sunset skimming over the river waters.”
