Bishop Anthony B. Taylor kicks off the annual Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal (CASA) Feb. 4-5 in parishes across the Diocese of Little Rock with a recorded homily to be played during all Masses (in video or audio format). Pledge envelopes are also handed out asking parishioners to meet this year's $2 million goal. This year's theme is "Meeting the Needs of God’s People." In his homily, the bishop pointed out that some of the needs that have surfaced through the Synod On Synodality and National Eucharistic Revival cannot be addressed on the parish level, making donations to CASA vital in responding to these needs on the diocesan level.

"One of the areas funded by CASA that was most frequently mentioned in our synodal consultations was that of youth and young adult faith formation, for which we already have a very active diocesan level ministry, both in English and in Spanish," he said. "Another area was that of our tribunal, which works hard to help people who are seeking to have their marriages regularized in the Church. ... The tribunal charges no fees; the process is difficult as it is." See a list of CASA-supported ministries in Arkansas Catholic.
"Thank you so much for your generosity in the past. I know these have been a very trying last few years, and thank you in advance for your generous response to this appeal," he added. (Read, watch or listen to his homily.)
Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal (CASA) began in 1990 to provide critical funding for the pastoral, educational and social needs of the Diocese of Little Rock. Through the generosity of Catholics our diocese, we have been able to help the poor, developing parishes and our Catholic schools to continue their ministries in promoting the teachings of Jesus. Donations have also helped to educate deacons, lay ministers and seminarians as well as make all ministries of the diocese a success. See What Your Donation Can Do or find a list of ministries supported through CASA by reading Arkansas Catholic.
At the start of the CASA campaign, parishioners are asked to turn in their pledge/gift envelopes, indicating their total gift and the method through which they will give it. They may choose from a one-time gift or pledge to be paid in monthly installments until the total gift is received. Donors may pay by check or credit card. To learn how to give to CASA, see Options for Giving. If you wish to donate online now, go to Online Giving.
CASA supports religious vocations, Catholic schools and charities, faith formation, Hispanic ministry, diaconate formation, pro-life activities and much more. See the list below to find specific examples of how your contribution can help people in our diocese.
