NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Area faith leaders are welcome to a luncheon by the Habitat for Humanity of Westchester at its New Rochelle headquarters on Wednesday, March 9, united in "The Theology of the Hammer."
An event flyer described this interfaith alliance as "a faith in action movement." The group's goal is to end poverty in Westchester county and build homes with Habitat of Westchester. The luncheon is part of "the effort to collaborate, promote peace, and counter religious conflict by building homes and honoring the dignity of individuals, families and communities."
The alliance salutes the "many who help us from all faiths, who build with us as Nehemiah builders, as St. Joseph's carpenters, as mitzvah and confirmation builders." Westchester Habitat also welcomes Maine's St. Joseph's College, Connecticut's Kent School and Ohio's Fisher Catholic.
The luncheon will be held at Westchester Habitat’s headquarters, at 659 Main Street, New Rochelle, at noon.
According to its website, in its nearly 30 years, it has completed 30 homes in Greenburgh, Mamaroneck, Mount Vernon, Ossining, Port Chester, White Plains, Yonkers, Larchmont, Bedford, Peekskill and Yorktown and New Rochelle.
