Reconciliation is available by appointment. Or arrive at least 30 minutes before mass and mention your request to an usher.


We Need Leaders!

The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry is launching a small group ministry for young adults!! Registration for joining the groups will open in mid December and groups will start gathering in mid January. All groups will have 6-8 people, have both a social and a faith-building component, will gather based around a common interest and will gather once a week for 8-10 weeks. But first… we need leaders!! If you have a hobby or interest you are willing to share with others and are interested in building community and growing in faith, this is for you!

We will provide all needed training and support. We just need willing hearts. For more info go to https://archregina.sk.ca/youth-ministry/young-adult-small-groups or email mbraden@archregina.sk.ca.

 

Games for St. Augustine Gators

Every year St. Augustine Community School has been so very fortunate to have had your support for our Santa Store. This year due to Covid, we are unable to provide the opportunity for our students and families. We still want to see our students with a gift for Christmas. We have decided to try to gift every family with a newly purchased board game and hopefully a few treats along with it.

Can you provide a family game or a donation? If so, please drop it off at the school or at Little Flower Parish by November 30. Thank you for your support

Social Time After Mass - Suspended

Join us on the first, second and fourth Sundays of every month for coffee and refreshments -- often a light lunch -- and visit with fellow parishioners.

 Unfortunately we've suspended hospitality until after the virus situation resolves.

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.

Ready for Electronic Giving?

Now you can make your offering gifts by automatic transfer from your bank account to Little Flower. Read more information in this document

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.
