UPDATED: St. Joseph House of Faith in Action Construction Tracker

New life and new possibilities are under construction on the 400 block of West 4th Street.

“The St. Joseph House of Faith in Action provides a welcoming home for all who seek to serve in solidarity with the local urban community and to be transformed through their own efforts to transform the neighborhoods of Our West Bayfront, one act of kindness at a time,” said Gannon University president Keith Taylor, Ph.D.

St. Joseph House will be an outreach ministry of Gannon University’s Center for Social Concerns with a mission to humbly serve neighbors in the spirit and example of St. Joseph the Worker through purposeful programs and actions based upon four pillars of service, simplicity, community and reflection.

Dr. Taylor, described the project’s multiple aims as providing a home base and living space for groups from Gannon and beyond to serve the Our West Bayfront (OWB) community, creating a retreat and community-based learning center for small group activities and gatherings and providing a home for working adults so that they may save for the opportunity to own their own homes in the neighborhood.

This is a labor of love within our community; track the progress of the St. Joseph House build below, and learn more about volunteer opportunities.
