Local Pastors Build Habitat for Humanity Home

Milwaukee faith leaders joined Habitat for Humanity this morning to build a home in the Washington Park Neighborhood.

The house built here today on 39th street will soon be home to a single Milwaukee mother of three.

The morning started off with a quick prayer for the 20 or so volunteers.

Those volunteers included pastors from Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist and other Christian denominations.

Soon Habitat for Humanity workers led those volunteers inside the house for some good old fashioned hard work.

The pastors working out here in the heat say it's a necessary service at a time when our country is seeing so much conflict.

"Especially at a time and in a culture that is very diverse, if we all work together to help each other, especially Help those who fall through the cracks, especially help the poor, then peace will flourish. And just will flourish throughout the land,” said Father Tim Kitzke/Vicar General Milwaukee Archdiocese.

This home will be complete by the end of this year.
