Click the link above to our new Indigenous Relations page for news from Archbishop Don and the clergy of Saskatchewan, including an explanation of the new fund-raising initiative
to support residential school survivors and their communities as a way of engaging more deeply in our own ongoing commitment and response to the Truth & Reconciliation process.

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.
