Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal

Annual campaign to support diocesan ministries

Options for Giving / En Español

Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal began in 1990 to provide critical funding for the pastoral, educational and social needs of our diocese. Through the generosity of Catholics in the Diocese of Little Rock, 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 from across the state as well as make all ministries of the diocese a success. To learn how to give to CASA, see Options for Giving or Contact Us.

Help Us Build the Kingdom of God in Arkansas

The 2014 Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal (CASA) begins Feb. 1-2 in parishes across the state. A recorded homily from Bishop Anthony B. Taylor will be played at all Masses in English and Spanish. Pledge envelopes will be handed out asking parishioners to meet this year's $2 million goal. CASA supports various diocesan, parish and school ministries. This year's theme, is "Help Us Build the Kingdom of God in Arkansas."

Listen Listen to Bishop Anthony
B. Taylor's CASA homily

"If we are not aligned with the Kingdom of God now, in the way we live our life now, how do we expect to share in the life of the Kingdom of God in the world to come?" asked Bishop Taylor in his 2014 CASA homily. "If we aren't making sacrifices to make the world a better place now, whose kingdom are we building with our efforts? Our own, or the Lord's?"

This year's CASA video demonstrates that no donation is too small. They all matter. If you want to know how donations to CASA are used, watch this video (left) to get a sampling of the various ministries this appeal supports.

"The lion's share of the money you donate to CASA funds our diocesan offices and partially funds, among other things, the education of our 40 seminarians and the efforts of Catholic Charities," explained Bishop Taylor in his homily. For a complete list of ministries supported by CASA read Arkansas Catholic.

"Now the Lord wants to use us to help redeem others in the New Evangelization, in which we give witness to the Lord in every facet of our lives, 24/7 — and also through all the initiatives you help fund through your donation to CASA," said Bishop Taylor. "Thank you for your generosity in the past, and thanks in advance for an even more generous response this year."

These resources detail the campaign's purpose, goals and explains how donations are used.

These resources are available to help parishes in promoting the campaign.
