When she could no longer work, a Northeast Philadelphia senior citizen became a prisoner in her own home, unable to participate in parish or community life.
Her fellow parishioners at St. Katherine of Siena connected her with Catholic Housing and Community Services (CHCS), which provides affordable housing to over 260 seniors, along with programming and support for over 1,100 elderly men and women each year.
Thanks to the support of her parish and CHCS, she found a new home at St. John Neumann Place II, one of five affordable senior residences offered by CHCS.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
