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

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.
