ST. CHRISTOPHER'S Episcopal Church in Linthicum honored a special friend Sunday when the Rev. Johvan Turyamureeba was the joint celebrant at the 8 a.m. and 10: 30 a.m. services.

Turyamureeba, the canon for missions in a diocese in the southwestern corner of Uganda, is completing a two-year program for a masters degree in theological studies at Virginia Theological Seminary and was attached to St. Christopher's last year as a part of his seminary studies.

He will graduate May 20 and return to Uganda on May 27.

Parishioners held receptions for him after each service.

St. Christopher's is at 116 Mary-dell Road. The Rev. J. Christopher Peiper is rector.

Crestwood yard sale

The Crestwood community's yard sale is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday off the 400 block of N. Hammonds Ferry Road, across from the Maritime Institute in Linthicum.

More than 100 families will participate, and refreshments will be available.

The Crestwood Improvement Association sponsors a yard sale each year, using the profits to help pay for the association's children's parties and to maintain landscaping at the entrance to the community.
