HOUMA - Construction is expected to start soon on a new building at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church and School.

The Courier reports the church's century-old sanctuary at Belanger and Barrow streets in downtown Houma was destroyed in a fire in 2010.

Since then, parishioners have worshiped at Grace Lutheran Church while raising money and working out plans for a new building at the old location.

Church leaders say a contract has been signed with Byron E. Talbot Contractors of Schriever and construction equipment is being assembled at the site.
