For some, turning 40 is something to dread, then forget. But Resurrection Parish in the Green Bay suburb of Allouez has chosen to leave a long-lasting remembrance of its 40th birthday.

Last weekend, Resurrection became the first Catholic parish in Green Bay to be sole sponsor of a Habitat for Humanity house. It also is the 25th Habitat house built in Green Bay since 1987. St. Elizabeth Seton,Green Bay, and St. Mary and Our Lady of Lourdes, De Pere, have been among those who have helped sponsor builds.

On Friday, volunteer crews from the parish erected a garage on the site at 1025 Smith St. in northeast Green Bay. They continued work on the garage and on the four-bedroom 1½-story house on Saturday after a blessing service conducted by Fr. Paul Demuth, pastor, before driving rains forced an end to the day's work.

The Gospel calls us "to stretch out beyond our home borders and to help others," Fr. Demuth said at the blessing. "This is sort of saying to ourselves, and hopefully to the larger community, that our faith must continue to build beyond our borders, both literally and spiritually."

The house will become the home for Michelle Schiltz and her three children, Justin, 13, Elaina, 10, and Alexander, 2. Schiltz must contribute 300 hours in "sweat equity" to help build the house, then make a $600 down payment and assume a 20-year, interest-free, mortgage.   Full story ...
