James and Judy Smith
During the youth baseball World Series in Cedar Hill in late June, James was one of the members of the baseball operations committee who dealt with the seemingly incessant need to stock the concession stands. He performed admirably, especially for someone still trying to work the kinks out of a second knee-replacement surgery last year . James joined the council in February 2013, took his major degrees here at Holy Spirit a year later and joined the fourth degree in September 2014. He and Judy live in Duncanville and have been parishioners since 2003. They were married in 1981. She has three boys from a previous marriage, and they have two daughters, 13 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. The Smiths help with parish funeral luncheons as part of the Community Life ministry and, during the Faith Formation year, attend an adult cluster on Sundays and a Little Rock scripture study class on Mondays. Judy serves as a companion for the Eucharistic Ministers to the sick and homebound; they were both ministers before James curtailed his schedule some.
