FR. DEXTER TRIP UPDATE: Click here for photos.
Many of you are probably aware that Fr. Dexter has been out of the country on a trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp. He has completed the trek with a group of fellow hikers and will be on his way back to the states in the next few days.
The news is reporting stories right now of a group who began the same trek after Fr. Dexter's group. Sadly 17 members of that group lost their lives in a heavy snowstorm. People are calling to ask if Fr. Dexter is safe, so we wanted to let fellow parishioners know that he is down from the mountain and will fly home soon. He is aware of this tragedy...and had reported along the way that this was a much more dangerous trek than he imagined. Please keep those who lost their lives in your prayers. And continued prayers for Fr. Dexter's group as they travel back to us. 10/15/2014
