Last Monday, the extraordinary Synod of Bishops to discuss the "Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization" began in Rome. The synod represents a key moment in the papacy of Pope Francis and in the life of the Roman Catholic Church, which is looking for more effective ways of communicating what it believes and teaches about marriage and family life and of supporting those who wish to live according to church teaching and are struggling to do so in the face of contemporary challenges.

The Rev. F. Richard Spencer, a priest of the Archdiocese of Baltimore who serves as an Army chaplain stationed in Germany, was named auxiliary bishop of the Military Archdiocese by Pope Benedict XVI on Saturday.

Archbishop of Baltimore Edwin F. O'Brien, former archbishop of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, said in a statement, "We are proud the Holy Father has chosen him, one of our own, to continue serving our brave and generous women and men in the military."

A man convicted in a 2010 fatal shooting at a Hess gas station in exchange for $9,000 argued unsuccessfully that he should get a new trial because the judge in his case had once been the target in a similar scheme. The Court of Special Appeals upheld Walter P. Bishop Jr.'s conviction in an opinion announced Tuesday. Bishop, now 32, was convicted and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus 20 years for shooting William "Ray" Porter at a Joppa Road gas station in Towson on March 1, 2010.

Roan S. Faulkner, bishop of a Pentecostal church in Catonsville, pleaded guilty Tuesday to assaulting a 43-year-old congregant last year after she went to him for advice on a family matter. By pleading to the second-degree assault charge, the defendant avoided a trial on seven criminal counts levied against him, including attempted second-degree rape, two sex offenses and committing unnatural or perverted acts. The remaining counts were dropped. Under the plea agreement, Faulkner, 63, the pastor of New Life Pentecostal Ministries, could be sentenced to 10 years in prison but will serve no more than 18 months.

One day in 1870, 41 newly freed slaves got together in Jackson, Miss., to establish a new branch of mainstream Methodism called the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church. Hundreds of members of that denomination, now known as the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, gathered at the Baltimore Convention Center Friday to consecrate the 61st, 62nd and 63rd bishops in its history. A two-hour service marked the end of the historically black denomination's weeklong general conference, a convention members hold every four years to choose new leaders and weigh doctrinal changes.

Reader Katrine Tierney writes that the Catholic bishops are preventing women from receiving from free contraceptives and that women have a right to follow their consciences ( "Catholic bishops overstep their authority," June 24). As I understand the bishops' objection to the health care mandate, it involves who pays for the contraceptives. They are not really free. Someone has to pay for them. Although insurance companies may pay for them upfront, they expect someone else to cover their costs.

The rallying cry "freedom to serve" will soon be heard in Baltimore as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and its Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty launches its annual "Fortnight for Freedom" campaign tomorrow. If you think this is an odd phrase to refer to the demand that religious employers be exempt from providing contraception access for female employees, you're not alone. The refrain also rings hollow for women and men everywhere who, because of the bishops' discriminatory practices, are not free to serve.

The Episcopal Diocese of Maryland elected its first woman bishop Friday, narrowly voting for the Rev. Canon Heather Cook to hold the post of bishop suffragan. Cook was among four candidates for the position - all of whom were women - and was elected after four rounds of voting among clergy and laymen at the diocese's convention in Ellicott City, according to a news release. A bishop suffragan is akin to a vice-president and helps run the diocese with its bishop diocesan. The rest of the Episcopal Church's dioceses must consent to the election before Cook is consecrated.

The FBI announced Thursday that a Maryland man - who is accused killing his wife, mother and three sons in 1976 - has been added to the bureau's 10 most wanted list. Authorities say William Bradford Bishop Jr., a cultured, high-ranking State Department official, beat his wife, Annette, 37, to death with a sledgehammer on March 1, 1976 in Carderock Springs, an upper-class Bethesda neighborhood. Authorities allege he then waited for his mother, Lobelia Bishop, 68, who lived with the family, to return from walking the dog, and then killed her with the same weapon.

When Bishop Lee Robinson Jr. was 3 years old, he'd sit on the front steps at night and wait for his father, a police officer, to return home. At that time in the mid-1950s, African-American officers in Baltimore weren't assigned squad cars. Instead, Robinson's father - who would become the city's first African-American police commissioner - rode the bus to and from his beat. "In those days, police officers carried nightsticks, and I'd watch him come around the corner, swinging that nightstick," Robinson, now an Ellicott City attorney, recounted Saturday before the funeral service for his father.
