Building Hope – Habitat for Humanity

Building Hope – Habitat for Humanity

Lenten Almsgiving Project

This Lent, our family of four parishes are partnering with Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity with the goal of raising $50,000. Our parishes will work with a family to help build a house in memory of long-time Habitat volunteer and parishioner, Mike Moran. Mike served with Habitat for 25 years and died this past fall. Please prayerfully consider giving generously in time and money as we help to build an entire house for a family in need. Make checks payable to “Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity” and place in the collection basket during Lent, on Holy Thursday or at Easter Masses. You may also make an online donation at http://milwaukeehabitat.org/donate/give-online/ (please add “Family of Four Parishes” in the comment section). Contact Pastoral Associate of Formation and Justice, Chad Griesel, at grieselc@archmil.org or 414-271-6180 with any questions.

Our Habitat for Humanity home build with Dedra and Carson will begin May 11th. Please prayerfully consider giving generously of your time. Everyone 16 years and older is invited to volunteer and no experience is necessary; Habitat for Humanity provides leadership and guidance for everything.
