Habitat for Humanity

The Rev. John Badders presented the Habitat for Humanity reports, noting that West Texas Builders is the diocesan connection to Habitat for Humanity International.  Badders reminded Council that the purpose of Habitat for Humanity is to “create opportunities for all people to live in decent and durable homes.”

Habitat, said Badders, has a vision of a world in which everyone has a decent place to live.  “We remember that God’s grace abounds for all people and that we are the hands and feet of that grace.”

Badders brought Council up to date on the challenge that Bishop Lillibridge put before the diocese in 2012 when he called for three new Habitat houses to be build in the next six years. In 2012, the first house was built in Lockhart; the second in Seguin in 2015.

The third house will be started this spring in Kerrville with a ground-breaking on April 9 at 10 am.  The Rev. Stockton Williams invited all to that event and put out a general call for volunteers on that  house. St. Peter’s will be the host church of the build, and Rich Schneider of that congregation will be the chair.
