New York: AIDS Hospice Christa House to Close
May 28, 2009
The first AIDS facility on Catholic Church property on Long Island, Christa House, is closing its doors after a decade, said co-founder Jean Prochilo.
Though Christa House is not affiliated with the Diocese of Rockville Center, diocese spokesperson Sean Dolan was saddened to learn of its demise. "We're sorry that it's closing its doors, because it has been a very vital ministry. We are looking to see what can be done to continue the mission of Christa House through some arrangement with Catholic Health Services."
