Good Friday: Day the battle was won

Published: April 18, 2019

On Good Friday we relive Jesus' suffering and death so we never forget God's unconditional love and desire for us to be saved. "He was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins; upon him was the chastisement that makes us whole, by his stripes we were healed. We had all gone astray like sheep, each following his own way; but the Lord laid upon him the guilt of us all." (Isaiah 53:5-6) We do not celebrate Mass on this day because it is a solemn day of prayer and mourning, which includes fasting and abstinence from meat. This year it is celebrated April 19. More

Published: April 17, 2019

The annual Holy Thursday Collection for Seminarian Education will be held April 18. The money from this Diocese of Little Rock collection will support the educational and housing expenses of the diocese's seminarians. In the past 10 years, Bishop Anthony B. Taylor has ordained 34 men to the priesthood for our diocese. This includes eight ordinations in 2018 alone. It was the largest ordination class in more than 60 years, and also lowered the average age of diocesan priests from 65 to 49. It costs $36,000 per year to form the men studying for the priesthood for our diocese.
