"I remember seeing this when I was in kindergarten," said Leonard Rulka, who portrayed the Apostle John. "I could not wait until it was my turn to be in it. " Prayers at the 14 stations, which are typically sculptures adorning the side walls of the sanctuary, are a customary Lenten observance for Catholics.

The clangs of cookie sheets and closing ovens were drowned out by the high-pitched banter of late-night sleepovers: teenage romances, school rivalries. At Calvary United Methodist Church on Saturday, several dozen teenagers had gathered early on a cold morning to raise money for service projects they will take on this summer. The fundraising plan was typical: They were going to sell cookies. What was not typical was that they baked them, too. In a four-hour stretch, the volunteers baked 15,600 cookies, or 1,300 dozen, packaged in a plastic bag with a personalized message.

The mother of pearl, the gold-leafed opalescent glass, the colors of an Impressionist painting were there all the time, hidden under four layers of retouching and crude repainting. The sculptural panel depicting the Virgin Mary and St. John is the centerpiece of a six-month refurbishment at Mount Calvary Church, Eutaw Street at Madison Avenue. "Before I started, the figure of St. John resembled actor Tony Curtis.
