Dear Friends in Ministry,

I would like to thank you for your participation, support and friendship over the past years I have been employed with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Prince Albert. God has blessed me with many opportunities, memories and moments shared with good people like you!

It is with both sadness and great joy, that I share the news – as of May 16th, I will be leaving my position of 11 years with the Diocese of Prince Albert and the Office of Youth Ministry.

In mid-July, I will be moving to Ottawa with my family to study for the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon at Holy Spirit Ukrainian Catholic Seminary. We plan to be there for about 3 years before returning back to Saskatchewan.

If you would like to contact me, or stay in touch, feel free to reach me through my private email:, or reach me on my cell phone 306-960-7789, until I have an Ottawa number.

Again, I thank you for all you have done and shared in my ministry over the years. I ask for your continued prayers, as I embark on this new chapter in following Christ’s call to “follow him.” May God bless you, your family and your ministry.

If you have any specific youth ministry needs, continue to use, and someone within the Diocese of Prince Albert will respond after I am gone.

Your brother in Christ,

Warren Dungen, Director

2013 Advent Calendar from XT3's Advent Calendar’s Advent Calendar

It is that time of year again to prepare ourselves for the Nativity of Christ.

Take some time to draw closer to God through prayer and reflection using the great tools on the website, or by downloading one of their apps for your mobile device. Even if you just commit to 3 minutes a day leading up to Christmas, you will be so surprised how much more meaningful the Incarnation will be to you (and those around you)!
