Bishop Taylor Homilies

Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal 2021
I am very proud of the generous spirit with which our people made the sacrifices necessary to comply with all the protocols, which none of us like — especially mask wearing and physical distancing — but so necessary for the common good.
Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B
I oppose denying Communion to politicians who personally believe what we believe but are not willing to impose our beliefs on others in matters of public policy. They clearly miss the mark, but we need to use persuasion, not coercion.
Mass for Life 2021
Merely changing laws will not put an end to abortion; the only lasting solution is to change hearts. And we will only change hearts when we begin to embrace a consistent ethic of life.

Rite of Election held despite challenges

Save lives through CRS Rice Bowl

If you aren't able to pick up your CRS Rice Bowl at church this week, you can order one online. This almsgiving project encourages participants to perform a simple sacrifice by substituting a low-cost meatless meal for a more expensive one, and putting the money saved in their cardboard "rice bowl" throughout the season of Lent. As we continue to struggle through a global pandemic, it may be more important than ever to help our neighbors in need. COVID-19 has dramatically increased unemployment and hunger worldwide, so rice bowl donations may be lifesaving for communities More

Lenten 40 Days for Life goes to March 28

The Lenten campaign of 40 Days for Life is being held outside the Planned Parenthood clinic at 1501 Aldersgate Road in Little Rock, a place where chemical abortions take place. The Little Rock prayer vigil was supposed to begin on Ash Wednesday, but was canceled because of winter weather. Prayer warriors are invited to pray outside the clinic from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through March 28.
