Bishop Taylor Homilies

14th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B 2021

Bishop comments on the delta variant

Bishop Anthony B. Taylor issued the following statement, July 9, 2021, to the people of the Diocese of Little Rock regarding the spike in COVID-19 infections and the presence of the delta variant in Arkansas.
