Blessing ceremony planned for two new Habitat homes

You'll soon hear the buzzing of saws and pounding of hammers at 909 Oak Street in Alexandria.

But first you're invited to hear words of thanksgiving and celebration at a "Blessing the Build" ceremony to jump start the newest Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity home in the community.

In addition to this home, another home will be built at 903 Oak Street.

Friends and neighbors and Habitat workers will offer thanks to God for what has already been done and gear up for the construction activity in the coming months.

The blessing ceremony for the two homes on Oak Street will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5.

Directions: Near Noonan Park, from the intersection of 8th Avenue East/Nokomis go one block east, turn south on Oak Street and proceed to construction activity.
