Little Flower Parish

It's May!

The month of May is a special time for we, as Catholics, to show great respect and gratitude to the Blessed Virgin Mary, our mother. We en-courage all of you to pray some of the many Marian prayers this month….the Angelus, the Memorare, the Magnificat, the Hail Holy Queen and the Holy Rosary are but a few.

As a congregation at Little Flower, we will pray the rosary before Mass each week in May, be-ginning at 4:30 on Saturday and 9:30 on Sunday. For those of you who would like to, we invite you to lead a decade of the Rosary.

We hope many of you will participate.

Keeping a Mass Journal 

EXPECT God to communicate with you

ASK: GOD, please show me one way in this Mass that I can become a-better-version-of-myself this week.

LISTEN:

- to the music
- to the readings
- to the prayers
- to the homily
- to the quiet of your heart

THE ONE THING will strike you ... write it down and pray about how you will incorporate that into your life this week.

Welcome To Little Flower  

Roman Catholic Church 

Little Flower parish was established in 1930, and today serves almost 500 families from our beautiful church near Regina's core. 

Our mission: Little Flower, as a faith community, reaches out to all in service, compassion and love to fulfill our mission of proclaiming the gospel daily in word and deed.

Our Patron, St. Thérèse 

I will spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses.

Thérèse Martin entered a Carmelite convent at age fifteen. As Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus, she lived a hidden life. She was just 24 when she died of TB. The world came to know her through her autobiography, The Story of a Soul.

She described her life as “a little way of spiritual childhood.”  She lived each day with unshakable confidence in God’s love.  What matters in life is “not great deeds, but great love.” 

“My mission — to make God loved — will begin after my death,” she said.  “I will spend my heaven doing good on earth.  I will let fall a shower of roses.” 

This is the reason St.Thérèse’s emblem is a crucifix covered with a profusion of roses.  The celebration of her Feast Day is October 1.

Our Stained Glass Windows

The windows in Little Flower church were designed and manufactured by Rault Freres, of Rennes, France, and installed by Burns Hanley Co. Ltd. of Regina.
