For the first time in recent history the Regina Archdiocese has produced an Annual Report that was made public at a first-ever Annual Meeting, held at the Regina Archdiocese office.
“We are doing two new things here,” said Archbishop Donald Bolen. “First of all, we’ve produced a good report, not a comprehensive view of where we are as an archdiocese, but an honest overview.

On Tuesday, June 13th, St. Anthony’s Parish in Regina celebrated, with praise and thanksgiving, their final Tuesday in the 85th consecutive Year of the 13 Tuesdays Devotion to their Patron Saint, which happened to fall on St. Anthony’s Feast Day. It was the last Tuesday of a spiritual journey, in which they gathered to pray, to give thanks and ask for the intercession of their powerful patron, St. Anthony, who never fails, even in desperate situations.
