Donor Wants Wichita Houses Built in Honor of Pope Francis

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Catholic Diocese of Wichita and Wichita Habitat for Humanity are teaming up to build two houses in honor of Pope Francis with the help of an anonymous donor.  The Wichita Eagle reports Wichita is one of several cities across the country to receive $60,000 from the donor who wants the construction to take place in Pope Francis' honor.  The two three-bedroom houses will be constructed during the pope's visit to Philadelphia in September.  Another $100,000 is needed for the project and will be raised by the Wichita diocese, which will also organize volunteers.  According to Kathy Lefler of Wichita Habitat for Humanity, similar donations to build "Pope Francis houses" have been received in cities including Sacramento, California and Washington, D.C., in the past year.
