Open letter to all those who have been wounded by the effects of clergy sexual abuse within the Archdiocese of Regina

This letter is to all of you who have been wounded through clergy sexual abuse: to those whose abuse was at the hands of a parish priest, a pastor, a member of a religious community; and to those who were abused at what was then known as an Indian residential school...

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.

Posture in Prayer

Archbishop Donald Bolen would like to remind all the Faithful of the following two items:

  •  Posture during the Eucharistic Prayer—kneel at the conclusion of the Sanctus (‘Holy, Holy, Holy’) and stand when the priest announces ‘The Mystery of Faith’.
  •  Posture during the reception of Holy Communion: the recipient is invited to make a bow of the head before receiving the Blessed Sacrament.

These are both part of the way of showing unity, like the unity of all joining in the communion hymn, as a means of fostering and expressing the communion of faith which holds us together in Christ.

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.
