A bitter dispute among board members of Joseph Richey House has been resolved, ensuring that Baltimore's pioneering AIDS and cancer hospice will remain open. The feud - which involved a stalemate between three board members of the Mount Calvary Church and three board members from the Episcopal All Saints Sisters of the Poor - was settled this month through negotiations led by Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Joseph H. H. Kaplan. Lawsuits filed by the church and the nuns against one other had threatened the future of the hospice, which the two groups created in 1980 and named after a former rector of Mount Calvary.

End-of-life care certainly fulfills a spiritual role The Rev. John William Klein's concerns that the "secular mission" of Joseph Richey House hospice has been emphasized at the expense of the spiritual mission points to his fundamental and disturbing lack of understanding about hospice care ("Feud threatens to close AIDS hospice in city," May 21). The spiritual care of persons with terminal illnesses is so crucial to our end-of-life care that a pastoral care representative is an integral and equal member of our interdisciplinary team, attending weekly team meetings, contributing to the plan of care, and ministering to all patients who desire clergy visits.
