Charity opens church to homeless

 (foto: ANSA)The Community of Sant'Egidio has opened Rome's San Calisto church at night to allow about 30 homeless people to sleep there during the recent extreme cold weather gripping the city, said the Vatican's Office of Papal Charities on Friday.
   
The site is extraterroritorial Vatican property within the city of Rome.
    

The church, a rectory of nearby Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere managed by the charitable organisation, began hosting the homeless last Saturday, providing beds, blankets, and restrooms.
