October 18 parish action planning meeting

At our highly successful parish brainstorm session on Tuesday, Aug. 28, three priorities came to the forefront. 

Here's where we can focus our energies as a parish:

1.   Start at the grassroots level with our youth, inviting them to serve, support and take ownership of areas of the church. 

2.    Minister to our families in the parish. Break down the walls and mingling with all cultures in the church. Form a buddy system and a welcoming committee for new parishioners, especially new Canadians.

3.    Maintain the momentum. Have sign-up sheets accessible for parishioners to indicate availability – recruit more volunteers.

Watch our Parish Action Plan pages for information, updates and more.

On Thursday, Oct. 18, we'll gather again to start developing an action plan. Come join us!

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.
