Michigan -- “It was a great day to offer ourselves
for the sake of a family in need.”
These are the words of Fr. Thomas Flynn, Director

home for Habitat for Humanity.
“We started the
day with Mass and then made the trip to Flint,”
said Fr. Thomas. “I was really proud of how the
guys offered up their Saturday to go and help someone
they don’t even know. They worked so hard that we
had to end a half-an-hour early because there was no

had a lot of fun doing it.”
The group put up siding, prepared the ground for a
walkway in front of the house, painted a storage shed,
and added a deck in the back of the new

Great work, guys!
