Established in 1884, the Diocese of Qu’Appelle is located in the southern third of the province of Saskatchewan on Treaty 4, 6, 2 and 7 land. The diocese now consists of 52 congregations worshipping in 30 parishes and serves approximately half of the Saskatchewan population.
Our mission, as a diocese, is to be disciples of Jesus Christ, living out the five Marks of Mission. These are:
- To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation
- 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. We work ecumenically through the LAURC Covenant with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, the Ukrainian Catholic and Roman Catholic churches in Saskatchewan. We 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!

Legacy or Planned Gifts
Legacy or Planned Gifts enable you to give for years to come. There are several ways you can do this.
The most common way is through a direction in your will that designates the Diocese of Qu’Appelle as a beneficiary of your estate to receive a specific amount or a percentage of the residue of your estate. To help you consider this as an option the Diocese of Qu’Appelle is a partner with Will Power, a Canada-wide public education campaign designed to inspire Canadians to think differently about charitable giving and to empower them to create positive change through their wills.

You can also give through life insurance in which the Diocese is named as a beneficiary, through gifts of RRSPs or RRIFs in which the Diocese is named as a beneficiary, through a gift of stocks or mutual funds or through a charitable annuity. Your financial advisor, estate planner or lawyer can provide information on legacy giving and how giving this way may provide financial and tax benefits to you and your estate.
Your giving reflects who you are and how you want the world to be. A donation or bequest might be directed to a ministry you cherish. You might fund a justice initiative, an educational venture or an outreach project you know will make a difference to future generations. You can also donate asking the Diocese to determine the area of greatest need and thereby provide financial resources for present and future ministry. However you choose to give or however you direct your bequest, thank you for generously giving in a way that reflects your faith, hope and love!
