Regina Catholic School’s Ukrainian Program

 

This year the Ukrainian Program will have a different delivery model. Students will not be transported during school hours due to guidelines set out by the Chief Medical Officer and Regina Catholic Schools.

The program will have a two-pronged approach, online instruction and information as well as face-to-face instruction. The program will run on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at St. Matthew. Parents can bring their students on either of those dates when it works best for their schedule.

The student’s health and safety is paramount to us and all sanitization protocols set out by the Chief Medical Officer and Regina Catholic Schools will be followed to the letter.

We are looking for your commitment to this new delivery model so that Ukrainian Program can continue during this time of uncertainty. Please contact Susan Kohuch at s.kohuch@rcsd.ca or 306-530-5786 if you are interested or would like more information about the program.

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.
