Catholics team up with Habitat Kent for Catholic Build 2017

Habitat for Humanity of Kent County and Catholics of our diocese are uniting to help bring Christ's love to neighbors in need of affordable housing.
This year's Catholic Build is a four-unit project being built at 648 4th Street, directly across from the Basilica of St. Adalbert. On any given day 30-40 volunteers will be working at the site with 1,700 volunteer opportunities being filled over the course of the project. It's anticipated that several hundred Catholics from multiple local parishes, schools and Catholic organizations will volunteer on the project. 
“God’s kingdom is in our midst and we are its citizens,” Bishop Walkowiak said. “Generosity, compassion and love are the ways that we, as Catholics, show our love for God. I’m proud that so many in our community are active in helping those in need, especially in providing families a worthy place to live.”
If you'd like to get involved, check with your parish office, or contact Habitat Kent at 616-774-2431.
