Taste of Faith

Taste of Faith began in 2010 as a dinner to raise money to pay for seminarian education in the Diocese of Little Rock. Over time, one dinner grew into multiple dinners held in all four regions of Arkansas.

In-Person Event

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Taste of Faith was combined into one, livestreamed event that was watched online in 2020-21. We went back to hosting an in-person dinner in Little Rock in 2022. This year, we added a second location. We no longer livestream this event, but it is recorded so you can watch at a later time through our YouTube channel.

"I am simply amazed by God’s attention and care for our diocese. He is truly providing for us just as a generous Father would! He is calling out to these young men, and, in the midst of a world filled with noise, they have heard and responded to the shepherd’s voice with their own generous gift of themselves. Imagine what God might be saying to you!"

— Father Jeff Hebert, Vocations Director

Faithful Giving

The people of the Diocese of Little Rock have invested more than $5 million to provide an education to our seminarians through Taste of Faith events in the past 14 years. After all the contributions were counted, more than $600,000 was donated in 2023.

Ongoing Need

To educate one seminarian costs $41,000 per year. This includes tuition, room and board, health insurance and other needs. Please help us form our future priests by donating now.
