Nuns Build 2016 – New Orleans

by | Oct 29, 2016 | News

Hanging drywall? Installing floors? These are no easy tasks but that doesn’t scare away nearly 100 nuns and members of Catholic communities across the country from rebuilding houses in New Orleans. Nuns Build 2016, an effort done in conjunction with the St. Bernard Project (SBP), will take place November 14-17.

SBP’s mission is to shrink the time between disaster and full recovery by ensuring that disaster-impacted citizens and communities  recover in a prompt, efficient and predictable manner. SBP works throughout the metro New Orleans area. Volunteers will participate in all aspects of the construction project from insulation, drywall, painting, flooring, etc… All volunteer construction projects are supervised. No construction experience necessary. SBP values volunteers young and old, experienced and inexperienced!

Take a few minutes and watch this video about Nuns Build 2016, which features Sister Monica Gundlar, a Sister of Charity of Cincinnati.
