Volunteers from faith organizations came together Sept. 13 to kick off the Building on Faith project on Ninth Street in Covington, raising the walls of a future Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West home.

The ceremony began with an opening prayer by Keith Bobb-Semple, of Church of the King. Terri Gage, vice president of homeowner services for Habitat St. Tammany West, introduced homebuyer Thomas Savoie; and Father Chris Zavackis, of Our Lady of the Lake, conducted the project blessing.
