Habitat for Humanity has asked the St. Vital Inter Faith group to sponsor another house build in 2018. They have purchased a building lot in south St. Boniface and are hoping to obtain another one or two in St. Vital. All 28 faith groups in St. Vital have been invited and we expect to have 50% or more participating in this project. Further details will follow as plans are developed.
