Bitter feuding among deadlocked board members is threatening to close Joseph Richey House, Baltimore's pioneering AIDS and cancer hospice. "It's a question of authority. We do not have any beef with the palliative care given there. It's America's best hospice," said the Rev. John William Klein, rector of Mount Calvary Church. The church and the Episcopal Sisters of the Poor share oversight of the hospice. Each side has three members on the board of directors, creating the current stalemate over control.

A faction of conservative Episcopalians, dismayed by the national Episcopal Church's recent decision to require the acceptance of women priests and bishops, has voted to form its own nongeographic province that would be governed by its own bishops.The move taken by the Episcopal Synod of America last week during its annual meeting in Philadelphia falls short of a schism, but clearly challenges the authority of the national church and local bishops.Yesterday morning, in the basement of Mount Calvary Church in Bolton Hill, the only parish in the Diocese of Maryland represented at the annual meeting, the Rev. William H. Ilgenfritz explained the implications of the vote as his parishioners sipped coffee and munched on sweet rolls.
