While people aren't in the pews, the Catholic Communication Campaign collection will still be taken up as planned May 16-17. Catholics are encouraged to make an electronic gift through their parish or drop off or mail their donation to their parish before May 17.
Half of the collection stays in the Diocese of Little Rock to support critical communications ministries, including Arkansas Catholic print and digital newspaper, newspaper and diocesan websites, newsletter, directory and podcast.
With support from previous CCC collections, the diocese has been able to offer most of its content for free. More than 5,000 digital subscriptions have been given to parishioners at no charge. The diocesan website, dolr.org. is updated daily with listings of online Masses and free resources during the pandemic.
Parishioners can also get updates from the free aSpire newsletter and social media sites including Instagram and Twitter.
For Catholics unable to give through their parish, online gifts can be made directly to the diocese through a secure website.
For more information, contact Arkansas Catholic at (501) 664-0125 or through the website.
