Darla Cooke was one of dozens of parishioners who pressed hands into the concrete sidewalk that runs between the new parking lot and the gym/parish center at St. Mary, Westville, on Aug. 23.

Hands in concrete make mark on Westville parish history

WESTVILLE -- Not many things are lasting enough to be set in stone, but members of St. Mary Parish here proved that love for their faith community was the exception to the rule last weekend.

Among recent improvements to the parish campus in this cozy Vermilion County village are a new parking lot and a new roof and air conditioning for the gym/parish center, with a new sidewalk running between the two.

Father Timothy Sauppé, pastor, invited parishioners to celebrate this new beginning by placing their handprints and names in the concrete sidewalk before it hardened.
