Return to Vibrancy
Saint Thérèse never had an easy life. Although she suffered from depression, tuberculosis, and religious doubts she maintained a smiling, pleasant, and unselfish manner. She acknowledged that not one day had ever passed without a struggle. But she still lived with a great sense of peace and joy.
Her sense of commitment led her to a profound experience of the love of God. St. Thérèse said:
“ Look at His adorable face. Look at His glazed and sunken eyes. Look at His wounds. Look Jesus in the Face. There, you will see how He loves us."
For our food drives, please be mindful that we cannot accept packages that have been opened, items that are partially used or those beyond their expiry date.
Some items in need:
Your donation can be made to your parish by:

You can also put your collection envelopes in a plain white envelope with "Little Flower Parish" on the outside and leave it in the parish mailbox outside the office door. We will record that donation as we normally would for the Sunday collection. Please use a cheque if possible, and not cash.

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.
