Project Overview

We've broken up our orginal Parish Proud Day into mini-Parish Proud DAYS! Now you can get in on the action multiple times throughout the year. We are also so excited to announce that Parish Proud is the official presenting sponsor of UL Lafayette's The Big Event. In addition to sponsoring this expansive service project, our team will be hosting a massive project at Girard Park.

On our first official Parish Proud Day in 2022, more than 500 volunteers came together at Girard Park for one massive transformation, completed in just two hours! Now, over a year later, the park is in need of some fresh love and care. Join Parish Proud as we come together once more to beautify and revitalize one of the most traversed parks in our community. Projects will include the repainting of several pavilions (to match the new color scheme), revitalizing the stone walls around the pond, a large-scale litter abatement force, and more!
