St. James, Wilkie
St. James Parish Council’s (Wilkie) spiritual leader asked members to find a way to bring a spirit of hope and positivity to the community; especially to those struggling because of the pandemic. The parish council responded with a special project, Spread the Joy. In December, members began selling vouchers that allowed buyers to enter the names of three people who they would like to be the recipient of a beautiful floral arrangement to brighten their day. More than 700 names have been entered and the floral arrangements bring joy to the recipients.
