Each winter, Catholic schools nationwide celebrate Catholic Schools Week. This year, it is being held Jan. 25-31, marking the 41th anniversary of the observance. The theme: "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service," notes the values at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are small communities of faith within the larger community of home, church, city and nation. Second, faith, knowledge and service are the measures by which any Catholic school should be judged. Schools nationwide observe the week with special Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and the community. To learn how Catholic schools in Arkansas celebrate this week, read the Catholic Schools Herald in this week's Arkansas Catholic. More
Bishop Anthony B. Taylor will celebrate the Mass for Life at noon, Sunday, Jan. 18 at the Statehouse Convention Center Ballroom in downtown Little Rock. Prior to the Mass, eucharistic adoration will begin at 11 a.m. followed by the Rosary for Life at 11:15 a.m. Anyone who has lost a child is invited to sign the Book of Innocents in their memory. Red roses will be placed near the altar to honor these children and their families during Mass. Each year, this Mass is celebrated to mark the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions that legalized abortion in the United States. The event is an opportunity for Catholics statewide to come together and pray for an end to abortion. More
