See scenes from the Feb. 8 Catholic Housing and Community Services’ groundbreaking for Father Augustus Tolton Place, a new affordable community for independent seniors in the Eastwick section of Southwest Philadelphia. The facility will be the seventh of its nature opened by CHCS.
Bishop John J. McIntyre, who oversees the Secretariat for Catholic Human Services as part of his administrative and pastoral responsibilities, presided over the blessing and groundbreaking ceremony. He was joined by Mr. James Amato, Secretary for Catholic Human Services; Ms. Heather Huot, Director of CHCS; members of the CHCS Board of Directors; local government officials; project development partners; and community supporters.
