This event was named after the late Bishop Andrew J. McDonald who served as shepherd for the Diocese of Little Rock from 1972 to 2000. It was during his tenure that Catholic Charities of Arkansas was established. The McDonald Center, which is home to the offices of Catholic Charities, is also named in his honor.
