2020 Campaign

Dear Friends in Christ,  

Our Risen Lord walks with us in every season. 

Living through the pandemic, we are mindful  that life can be tumultuous and brutally difficult.

In his letter to the Romans, St Paul reminds us  that “hope does not disappoint us, because  God’s love has been poured into our hearts  through the Holy Spirit that has been given to  us.” This year, you’ll see videos about how hope has been brought to life in our diocese during these unprecedented times - experiences  made possible through donations to the Archbishop’s Appeal. 

As we launch this year’s appeal, acknowledging  the great challenges that many of you have  faced in recent months, I would ask you to  prayerfully consider a donation that would not  be burdensome to you, but would express your  hope that God continues to be at work in our  world, and despite our limitations and struggles,  in our church.

Yours in Christ,

Archbishop Donald Bolen,

Archdiocese of Regina

Hope in Every Season 2020 Appeal

A Time for Resilience

New Ways of Reaching Out

In what felt like an instant, the pandemic changed almost everything. Despite not being able to gather as we once could, we continue  to be church, and we continue to journey together. 



A Time for Caring:

Helping Others During Lockdown

“The Archdiocese’s work to alleviate suffering is a step in the right direction.”


A Time for Trusting:

Finding God in the Pandemic

Trusting in God is not easy when our normal way of living is completely disrupted. 



A Time for Envisioning:

Future Full of Hope

God promises us a future full of hope. That same Spirit calls us anew each day to do our part to dream and to build that future.

From Belief to Faith in Action: St. Wenceslaus and Gerald's Story

From Need to Comfort: Sherrie's Story

"It was like the sun coming up...I had been in the dark for so long."

"Could God ever love a man like me?"
