This annual publication is the most comprehensive guide to the diocese, its offices and parishes. Among the many listings included, the Parish section details Mass schedules, addresses, phone numbers, office hours and the names of critical staff for every parish in the diocese. Other important sections include a detailed descrip- tion of each diocesan office, its staff and the services offered. All Catholic schools, hospitals and religious com- munities are represented with important information as well. Several new items to the directory are worthy of note. As more parishes and organizations within the diocese embrace the information superhighway, Internet web St. Boniface Church in New Dixie is featured on the 1998 Diocese of Little Rock directory cover. which resulted in a change for most of the state. While the actual boundaries of the new area code may sdll be hard to figure out, the 1998 diocesan directory takes the guesswork out of your long distance call by accu- rately listing each phone number that requires 870. With more rural areas of the state receiving new street assignments for 911 emergency service, mailing ad- dresses for many facilities listed in the directory have changed. Not only does this year's edition include those new addresses, they have each been certified by the United States Postal Service to ensure the most accu- rate directory address information ever published. St. Boniface Church in New Dixie adorns the cover of this 164-page guide. Its image as a country church "with the litde cemetery out front" recalls fond memories of times gone by for many Catholics across the State.
