Portraying the Living Stations of the Cross is an annual Lenten ritual that the 13 eighth-grade students at St. Casimir Catholic School in Canton anticipate with as much fervor as the other crowning events that define their last months of grammar school. "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 Canton neighborhood has discovered how good it is to give back. In the past four years, as an old convent found new life as a home to dozens of bone-marrow transplant patients and their families, Southeast Baltimore residents and business people have brought meals and love to families caught up in complicated medical treatments that stretch over many months. The Believe in Tomorrow House at St. Casimir — just off Canton's O'Donnell Square — has become the focus of neighborhood goodwill.

The Rev. Casimir Pugevicius, a champion of Lithuanian religious rights during the Soviet era, died Tuesday of cancer at St. Vincent de Paul's rectory in downtown Baltimore. He was 71. Born to Lithuanian immigrant parents in Southwest Baltimore near Carroll Park, he was a strong voice for his family's Baltic homeland. "Father Pugevicius was always the symbol of courage and the truth," said Rolandas Kacinskas, Lithuanian Embassy press secretary. The Lithuanian government recently awarded him the Order of the Grand Duke Gediminas for his years of activism in the 1970s and 1980s, when church activity was not officially banned, but those who attended Masses were observed by Soviet KGB agents and faced other forms of harassment.

Three-year-old Landon Morrill is perhaps too young to understand the power of positive thinking. But to see the joy in his smile and the bounce in his step, you would never think that he recently underwent a wrenching bone-marrow transplant - after his parents were told he had a 1-in-10 chance of surviving treatment for his leukemia. "Can you do Happy Feet?" his mother, Colleen, asked, referring to the animated film with dancing penguins. Landon then frolicked as he tapped his tiny feet on the floor, occasionally hamming it up for all who watched with delight.

Above the domes atop Canton's St. Casimir Roman Catholic Church, more than 100 feet in the air, gusts of wind occasionally send Michael Kramer's thin flakes of gold flying into the sky. "There goes a couple bucks," jokes Kramer, a gilder who is putting the finishing touches on a three-month, $40,000 restoration project at the church that symbolizes the resurgence of St. Casimir and the once-bustling Polish settlement it was built to anchor. After 50 years of slow deterioration, both are growing.

The twin spires of St. Casimir Roman Catholic Church have stood like sentinels in the heart of Canton for 75 years, signposts for the neighborhood, markers for sailors plying the harbor and a comfort for the faithful, pointing ever upward toward the heavens. The parish, a century old next year, is in the midst of the most profound change in its history. So too the neighborhood. From its beginnings as an urban, ethnic church serving Polish immigrants, St. Casimir now finds itself ministering to young, upscale professionals while still attending to the needs of its aging, more traditional parishioners.

The sound of more than a thousand singing voices spilled out the doors of St. Casimir Church in Canton yesterday afternoon as 10 young people emerged into the sunshine carrying a 10-foot wooden cross on their shoulders. Cardinal William H. Keeler, archbishop of Baltimore, emerged next with several other members of the clergy. And then hundreds of young Catholics poured out onto the sidewalk and started proceeding down the street. Mae Richardson, coordinator of youth ministry for Sacred Heart Parish of Glyndon, looked at the noisy, briskly moving sea of young people stretching for blocks along the edge of Patterson Park.
