Catch The Building Spirit is a group of local Catholic and Presbyterian Churches who have worked together for the last 22 years to provide affordable housing to a family in need. Work on the annual Presbyterian/Catholic build continues throughout the summer. Two of our Westminster members work as house leaders: Jerry Shell on Thursdays and Fridays, and Karen Clute on Fridays and Saturdays. Questions? Contact Karen Clute (firstname.lastname@example.org).
