Religious leaders of various faiths unite with Habitat for Humanity

0713 Interfaith HabitatThe Fort Bend Interfaith Council helped build a home for a young family at a St. Laurence Catholic Church-Fort Bend Habitat for Humanity house build on Saturday, May 7, in Rosenberg.

The Fort Bend Interfaith Council strives to foster a spirit of friendship and respect between Fort Bend’s diverse faith communities through service projects, prayer services, and fellowship gatherings throughout the community.

Over 50 volunteers helped clear and level the grounds surrounding the house, laid grass, planted trees and dug up flower beds. The participating faith groups were St. Laurence Catholic Church, Christ Church -Sugar Land, Congregation Beth El, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Ismaili Center.
