A new home in the Millvale neighborhood, built to honor Pope Francis, welcomed new residents following its dedication, Jan. 23. The home for the Bureau family was funded with $60,000 in seed money from an anonymous donation, which was matched by the Cincinnati Catholic community. A total of 568 volunteers contributed 3,715 hours to complete the project.
“After months of hard work by many area Catholics and other generous people, we are delighted to see the Pope Francis House now become a home,” said Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr of the Cincinnati Archdiocese. “I will continue to pray that the house will provide years of comfort and warm memories to the Bureau family building a life together under its roof.”
