Ground-breaking planned for St. Francis church

A groundbreaking ceremony for the Catholic Community of St. Francis will be held at 1 p.m. July 28 at the church's new property on Cuba Road in Hunt Valley.

Cardinal William H. Keeler, archbishop of the Baltimore Roman Catholic Archdiocese, and Monsignor Thomas Donellan, pastor of the parish, will preside.

Getting zoning approval for the new church, which will seat 650, took nearly five years. The church is expected to open in about a year.

The parish currently leases space on the lower level of Executive Plaza I on McCormick Road, where Masses are offered Saturdays and Sundays.

Workshop scheduled on emotional suffering

An all-day workshop -- focusing on deliverance from loneliness, pain, fear, anger and depression -- will be held from 8: 30 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 27 at St. Stephens African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1601 Old Eastern Ave.

The event is sponsored by the Deliverance Ministry, an organization at St. Stephens. The Rev. William A. Gray will preside. Information: 686-9392.
