Saturday, July 29 --- 7 Regina Churches
In addition to being a prayer journey across the diocese, the cycle ride also provides an opportunity for people to contribute financially to the bishops discretionary fund. This fund, provides support to individuals in financial difficulty; for example it has helped subsidize hotel costs for the spouse of an individual who has undergone medical treatment; it has allowed for an individual to attend a family funeral abroad; it contributes to congregations whose church or Rectory suffers damage. The discretionary fund also helps laity and clergy attend retreats and educational events and provides a Christmas gift to all of our retired clergy and local ordained clergy and their children. Finally, the fund helps, and continues to help, provide money to those in distress or desperate need.
I thank you once again for your interest in the ride and I pray you will be blessed as you participate, contribute or simply follow these updates on this amazing pilgrimage across the diocese of Qu'Appelle
Yours in Christ
