Screen door hard to open and close

A few years ago I "kissed" one of those concrete pylons that was protecting a building corner with the bottom hinge on our entry door. Not bad, just a little yellow paint that I scrubbed off the door. Ever since then the screen door sits a little cock-eyed in the frame.

It didnít become a problem until I removed the doors in order to swap refrigerators recently. Now the screen door catches on the frame side of the latch and I have to twist the frame a bit to get it to close. There is less space between the door and the door frame at the bottom.

Any suggestions for how to make it close easier?
