Archbishop Gomez’ Site Blessing

Chris Untiet, Archbishop Gomez, Erin Rank

Archbishop Gomez, who is the Archbishop of the nation’s largest Catholic Archdiocese, paid a visit to our seven home site on Magnolia in Lynwood. He blessed each home and also spent time with each family inside their home.

Archbishop Gomez also blessed the work of Habitat LA’s Catholic Coalition, which helped to build and sponsor one of the homes. The inaugural Catholic Builds home is being purchased by the Rendon’s. Maria is a Catholic school teacher and Ricardo is a retired US Navy Veteran.

We are grateful for the Archbishop’s support in ensuring that individuals and families have access to decent and affordable housing. To learn more about our Catholic Coalition, please contact Chris Untiet, Director of Faith Relations, at
