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.

The funding priorities are as follows:
1) Healing and Reconciliation
2) Cemeteries on the sites of former residential schools
3) Education and Cultural Support

It is our responsibility now to educate ourselves in order to walk the road together of right relationships, truth, justice and reconciliation. We offer a 3-fold way of entering into this: “Education – Encounters – Experiences” in a PDF.

Season of Creation

September 1 - October 4, 2021

Season of Creation Sky Sunday.

Father God, help us to realize that we live under one sky, breath one air, walk the same path of life on this one earth. This fragile planet, our tent, our home is your gift to us. Help us to treat it will respect, with love as we move toward a Laudato Si’ "care for our common home" way of living.

We offer today a small selfless act. May it ripple and generate an attitude of gentleness toward each other and our fragile home. (Linda Maddaford) . To learn more about it visit https://seasonofcreation.org/

 

Prayer In Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples

O God, Great Spirit and Faithful Creator, with humility we your children acknowledge the relationship of all living things. For this we thank you, we praise you and we worship you.

We call on you, Great Mystery, the Word made Flesh – our teacher,
prophet and brother - to open our hearts to all our brothers
and sisters, and with them to grow in the wisdom, honesty,
courage and respectfulness shown in The Sacred Teachings. Give us the honesty to recognize that the Earth provides us with life sustaining breath, nourishment and healing, and give us the strength to proclaim by our words and actions that the Earth is a blessing for all peoples.

May we avoid the sins of exploitive personal power and profit. May
we seek the righteous way of love, service, and healing in all things. Father, as we walk our journey on this Earth, may your life-giving Spirit protect and guide us with your Wisdom so that we might live in right relationship and harmony with all humanity. May we pass on to future generations this Earth and all your gifts as you have provided them to us. Amen.

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.
