Habitat for Humanity

Hammering 4 Habitat

St. Catharine’s has sponsored a 2”x 4” stud that will be 
used in the building of a new house by Paterson Habitat for Humanity.  This stud will be available after all masses this weekend as well as next weekend to write a message of hope and encouragement on it.

Additionally, Paterson Habitat for Humanity is holding an event on Saturday, Nov 5 at the Paterson Museum where this personalized 2”x4” stud will be built into a wall frame. Families, couples, and individuals of ALL ages from St. Catharine parish are invited to attend this event.  During the timeframe of 11:30 am to noon, we can help build a wall frame using the St. Catharine parish sponsored stud.  For more information, contact Pam Biggs at 201-670-8760 or or click on the flyer here.
