Dear Friends in Christ:
In this issue of Arkansas Catholic the Diocese of Little Rock is publishing its annual financial report. We do this to give our readers information and insight into our financial status. Most of our income comes from Catholics like you, from donations, program fees and bequests. We also get money from parish assessments, grants and earnings from investments. Without this money, we would not be able to operate our many ministries and programs.
Pope Francis has said, “Money has to serve, not to rule.” Quoting St. John Chrysostom, he added, “Not to share one’s goods with the poor is to rob them and to deprive them of life. It is not our goods that we possess, but theirs.”
We want you to know that we take great care managing this money. The Diocese of Little Rock is committed to transparency and accountability and publishing this report is one way we accomplish those goals. Thank you for entrusting this money to us, and please pray for us to remain good stewards always.
Sincerely in Christ,
+Anthony B. Taylor
Bishop of Little Rock
