Mount Ida’s All Saints Catholic Church recently had a steeple added to its church building thanks to a local family’s desire to honor their mother and wife’s commitment to her faith.
The steeple construction was made possible by the Richard and Josephine Campbell family, and was erected in loving memory of Josephine B. Campbell. Richard and Josephine were married for sixty-eight years before she passed away in February of 2020, and both strongly believed that every church should have a steeple.
Anthony B. Taylor, Bishop of the Diocese of Little Rock, came to All Saints and blessed the steeple on Sunday, December 11, 2022 prior to the beginning of the 12 p.m. mass.
The steeple is visible from the road. The lights in the steeple at night provide a beautiful representation of Christ’s call for his people to be the light in the world.
All Saints Catholic Church is located at 708 Highway 270E in Mount Ida.
Adoration is held each Sunday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Sunday Mass begins at Noon. Thursday Mass begins at 10 a.m.
