Annual General Meeting
Pastoral Letters on Reconciliation With Indigenous Peoples
"That We May Walk Together"
As the Archdiocese of Regina continues its journey towards healing and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, we wish to share a series of letters from the Bishops of Canada that detail several paths forward and serve as a guides for our efforts over the coming months and years. These letters have been informed by conversations with Indigenous partners and inspired by Pope Francis.
Here, you will find several foundational commitments made by the Bishops of Canada, and our Diocese, including continuing dialogue, supporting local projects through the Indigenous Reconciliation Fund, promoting Indigenous culture, pursuing justice with Indigenous Peoples, addressing social challenges, celebrating the role of women in Indigenous faith communities, and inviting Indigenous Elders to share their spiritual wisdom.
The pastoral letters can be found as a few copies in the Gerein Centre and below:

Celebration of the Mass at Holy Cross
Holy Cross has revisited procedures and polices for worship. The Dispensation from Mass has been lifted. The faithful are asked to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation. Although the public dispensation from Mass has not been in effect since August 2021, the sick and medically vulnerable have always been dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. If you are ill, elderly or medically vulnerable in any way, you are urged to continue to take every precaution to keep yourself and others safe.
We have gone back to Masses as before COVID. Hand sanitizer is still available.
We will continue to use the Gerein Centre entrance as the primary entrance to the church. On weekends the Douglas Avenue doors will also be opened - please sanitize your hands when you come in. Although physical distancing will no longer be required, we strongly suggest to continue distancing practices.
Holy Water Fonts
Holy water is again available.
Sign of Peace
Physical touching (shaking hands, hugging, etc.) is now up to the individual and their comfort level. The Sign of Peace may be expressed with handshakes, hugs, a bow or similar ritual gesture.
The priest continues to distribute communion with the assistance of one extraordinary minister. Recipients are encouraged to use hand sanitizer before they receive. Reception in the hand is to be the norm. Father is comfortable with Communion on the tongue for those who would prefer. Individuals with cold or flu symptoms are asked to stay home until well. Reception of the Blood of Christ will not resume at this time. Blessed Blood will not be offered at this time.
Bulletins are being handed out again. Please take one on your way out. They are also available on this web page.
