WICHITAL FALLS, TX  – Notre Dame Catholic School partnered with Habitat for Humanity to spread love and support for future homes. Students ages 3 – 18 were charged with the same mission: to cover every Habitat home in peace, love, strength, and protection by writing a blessing and or scripture on the wooden studs that will be used to build future Habitat for Humanity homes.

After researching Scripture quotes, each class took two or three studs for the home and wrote their Scripture quotes on the boards.

Each area of the home was designated with specific blessings or verses including the perimeter with a protection from evil,  the bedroom with rest, the kitchen with fruitfulness and gathering, the living room with gathering, the hallways with searching for God, doorways with letting God in, and the rafters with God's covering.

The initiative for the exercise in faith and sharing was brought to the Notre Dame School by former employee and Notre Dame parent, Barbara Lyne who is currently the Marketing and Development director for Habitat for Humanity of Wichita Falls. 

Senior Rachel Parkey took part in the project and said “This is such a special project. We are honored to work with Habitat and we hope that these pieces of wood go on to bless the families who lives within them.”
