Hoette Concrete workman Tim Frese troweled wet cement mix into a form for the site of three tiny houses behind Sts. Teresa and Bridget Church. Students at Rockwood Summit and Eureka high schools built two of the tiny houses, with support from several groups including Social Justice 4 All, St. Clare of Assisi School and North Grand Neighborhood Services.

A trio of tiny houses needs one more big push to become a reality for people in need in St. Louis.

The Tiny Houses Project will place three tiny homes — each measuring 14 by 26 feet — on a lot near Sts. Teresa and Bridget Parish in the Jeff-Vander-Lou neighborhood of north St. Louis.

The joint effort helps to address, in a small way, needs of homeless people in the St. Louis area. The project, however, needs about $50,000 to complete work on the foundation, utilities and construction of a third home.

Pope Francis and many U.S. bishops condemned as immoral the policy of separating children and parents entering the country illegally, such as this Honduran woman and child crossing the border June 12 at  in McAllen, Texas. Catholics cannot dismiss the bishops when they are teaching with regard to the moral law,  including when it applies to governmental laws and public policies, said theologian Larry Welch said.

Even in political matters, it's within the Church's mission to pass moral judgment 

Condemnation of a U.S. policy of separating children from their parents at the southern border, including from the U.S. bishops, preceded a move by President Donald Trump June 20 to end the policy.
