Taste of Faith is a dinner to raise money to help pay for seminarian education in the Diocese of Little Rock. It is usually held twice a year in Little Rock and another region of the state.
In addition to the meal, attendees are treated to musical entertainment, testimonies and talks from the diocesan vocations director and bishop.
The diocese currently has more than 40 seminarians and it is estimated to cost the diocese $36,000 a year to educate one man per year. Thus, the diocese needs about $1.5 million a year for their immediate education and living expenses.
In addition to this event, seminarian supporters may contribute to the cost of seminarian education any time of the year by donating online to the Support Seminarian Education fund. If you prefer to give cash or write a check, you are welcome to contribute to the annual Holy Thursday Collection for Seminarians, which is taken up in all parishes in Arkansas, or donate to the Msgr. James O'Connell Seminarian Fund.
