Little Flower Parish

COVID-19 Update

Coming to Mass?

You MUST wear a mask to receive Holy Communion. (Archdiocese regulation.) We do not have a supply of masks, so bring your own if you wish to receive Holy Communion.

If you would like to be on the Sunday Mass list, call or email Gadia, our Office Administrator by Thursday that week (office hours are currently restricted to Tuesdays and Thursdays). Click here to email.

After your turn, contact the office again to be put on the wait list for a future Sunday Mass (by Thursday). Parishioners on the "every week" list should also wait to receive acknowledgement they can attend on weekends.

Little Flower parishioners May attend weekday masses without invitation.

Leaders needed

Do you have a gift for hospitality? Are you looking to be part of a small community of young adults who can come together around a shared interest? (Jogging? Dancing? Movies? Art? Parenting?) If so, then the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry needs you! We are looking to create a wide variety of small groups for young adults, but we need people willing to commit to leading for a period of 8 weeks. Each group will have a social/shared interest component and a faith component. We will help with all of it! All we need is your willingness to serve.

If you are interested, email oyyam@archregina.sk.ca

Email Fraud Alert

Please be aware that Fr. Jake is not emailing parishioners asking for "a favor." It is not his email address on the message. He would not contact parishioners this way, nor would any priest in our diocese. 

If you get such an email, and the person asks you for anything, contact the city police. 

Archbishop Don will resume weekly videos later this summer.

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?

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.
