A refuge in Alexandria

Bishop’s Column: The church’s service to the poor, in imitation of Christ, has always been central to the mission of the Diocese of Arlington and a focus of our priests and lay faithful alike.

As we celebrate our Diocesan Golden Jubilee, we also celebrate the 50th anniversary of Catholic Charities Christ House, which opened its doors in 1973 as a homeless shelter in Alexandria and has been serving a free evening meal 365 days a year ever since.
