The eighth annual Catholic Schools Scholarship Appeal kicks off Nov. 14-15 to benefit students whose families do not have the financial resources to provide a Catholic education without financial assistance. Marguerite Olberts, associate superintendent of schools, is asking everyone to pray for the success of this year's appeal. "Sadly, there are Catholic schools throughout the country closing due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We don't want that to happen in Arkansas. Catholic schools are facing a combination of financial challenges: decrease subsidy from parishes, canceled fundraising events and a greater need for financial assistance for families negatively affected by the pandemic. So this year's appeal is needed more than ever." This program is sponsored by the Office of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Little Rock.
