About The Anglican Diocese of Qu’Appelle

The Anglican Diocese of Qu’Appelle is a community of people who seek to live the love of Christ for all people. 

The Diocese of Qu’Appelle is located in the southern third of the province of Saskatchewan on Treaty 4, 6, 2 and 7 land. Established in 1884, the diocese now consists of 52 congregations worshipping in 30 parishes and serving approximately half of the Saskatchewan population. The administration of the Diocese and its Cathedral are located in the city of Regina. Our mission, as a diocese, is to be disciples of Jesus Christ and to live the five Marks of Mission accepted by the Anglican Church world-wide:

  1. To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  2. To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  3. To respond to human need by loving service
  4. To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation
  5. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth

This wide-ranging mission is lived out locally through the parishes of the Diocese. The Diocese works to enable parishes’ mission and ministry through education and training, congregational development and stewardship, children’s and youth programming, development of indigenous ministry, administrative support and the pastoral leadership of the Bishop. As Anglicans we work ecumenically through the LAURC Covenant with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, the Ukrainian Catholic and Roman Catholic churches in Saskatchewan. We also engage globally with our Companion Dioceses of Lichfield (England) and Muyinga (Burundi) and through co-sponsorship of refugees to our diocese. Locally and globally, we seek to serve God and our neighbours!

Our Impact

Our ministry engages with communities of faith locally and globally to change people’s lives and meet their deepest needs. We are:

  • Working with Anglican churches to adapt to changing circumstances and adopt new forms of ministry.  Our goal is vital and viable congregations meeting needs in their local areas.
  • Educating people through the Qu’Appelle School for Mission and Ministry. This initiative allows all who want to learn to pursue education through online learning and weekend events. Those considering ordained ministry can pursue a Licentiate in Theology through QSMM’s partnership in WECAN (Western Education Collaborative Anglican Network) and the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad.
  • Engaging with Indigenous leaders in the diocese to act on the calls to Truth and Reconciliation within our parishes and the Diocese of Qu’Appelle. The outcome of this critical area of ministry will deeply impact both the church and the wider community.
  • Welcoming refugees through the diocesan Refugee Sponsorship program. In 2020 77 people were co-sponsored with individuals and families; because of Covid only 10 arrived. In 2019 51 people were co-sponsored with 21 arrivals.
  • Helping our companion diocese of Muyinga (Burundi) to build and equip a health clinic and provide critical maternal health care locally.

How your gift will be used

Legacy gifts create a way for your parish and our diocese to live God’s love through word and deed for decades to come. 

As Christ’s disciples we are called to love God and our neighbours in a rapidly changing world. A bequest in your will would enable current ministries to continue and new initiatives to be funded. The Qu’Appelle School for Mission and Ministry, urban and reserve indigenous ministry, staffing for children’s and youth ministry, congregational development and stewardship all require extraordinary funding and your gift could be part of that.

Your planned giving reflects who you are and how you want the world to be. A bequest might be directed to a ministry you cherish in your parish or the diocese. You might fund a justice initiative, an educational venture or a community outreach project you know will make a difference to future generations. You could also leave a gift to your parish or the diocese asking them to determine the area of greatest need and thereby provide financial resources for future ministry.

However you direct your bequest, thank you for generously giving in a way that reflects your faith, hope and love.
