Hold your breath for what's new at the Resource Centre

"One is Nearer God's Heart in a Garden Than Anywhere Else on Earth."

It’s finally here ... gardening season. How I love to get out in the sun and warmth, listening to the birds singing their songs and feeling the dirt between my fingers! My garden is my retreat house, my place to connect with God in the ordinariness of my life.

I think that’s why these two books here in the Archdiocesan Resource Centre spoke to me in such a deep way...

Pegge Bernecker's Your Spiritual Garden: Tending to the Presence of God is a six-week retreat in daily life designed to release the inner gardener in all of us. Using Scripture, prayers, meditation, physical and communal activity, as well as participation in the Eucharist, Bernecker teaches us to tend our spiritual garden and ultimately cultivate our relationship with our "Master Gardener."

Meditating upon how interaction with the earth opens the heart and embraces the A Mystic Garden by Gunilla Norris affirms the garden as a soulful space where people can take root and experience the changing seasons and the enduring cycle of renewal. Filled with the joy of living, this enchanting spiritual guide will speak to those who yearn to find the holy in the place they call home.

However you spend it--in the garden or not--enjoy your summer for what it is ... God's gift of rest and relaxation!

The Archdiocese of Regina, regrets to inform you that...

Le Carême est un temps de renouveau pour l’Église, pour les communautés et pour chaque fidèle. Mais c’est surtout un « temps de grâce » (2 Cor 6, 2). Dieu ne nous demande rien qu’il ne nous ait donné auparavant : « Nous aimons parce que Dieu lui-même nous a aimés le premier » (1 Jn 4, 19). Il n’est pas indifférent à nous. Il porte chacun de nous dans son cœur, il nous connaît par notre nom, il prend soin de nous et il nous cherche quand nous l’abandonnons. Chacun de nous l’intéresse ; son amour l’empêche d’être indifférent à...

Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Archdiocese of Regina.

Since the founding of our country, it has been against the law for someone to take another person’s life, including to help someone commit suicide.  A recent ruling of the Supreme Court of Canada has changed that by striking down the laws prohibiting physician assisted suicide in Canada.
