The Rev. Jason Catania was ordained an Episcopal priest a dozen years ago. He will be ordained again Saturday at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore. This time, he will be vested as a Roman Catholic priest. Catania moved to Roman Catholicism in January, along with the Revs. John Anthony Vidal and David Reamsnyder, two colleagues in the Episcopal priesthood. All three are set to be ordained this weekend. Several dozen parishioners who had been pastored by Catania, 40, at Mount Calvary Church on North Eutaw Street for six years have also converted to Catholicism.

WASHINGTON -- When David Catania heard that he had won a D.C. Council seat this week, the first thing he did was tell a crowd of supporters how thankful he was for Ken Baker, his companion of four years.The fact that Catania is the council's first openly gay council member is not the only reason why his victory is remarkable. He is also white in a majority-black city and a Republican in a town where there are 10 times as many Democrats as Republicans.Catania, a 29-year-old political neophyte with a doughy face and wire-rimmed glasses, surprised the establishment here in Tuesday's special election for the open at-large seat.

The first was the fatal shooting Wednesday night of the Rev. Giuseppe Puglisi, a staunchly anti-Mafia Roman Catholic priest, in Palermo.The explosion yesterday carved a crater 10 feet in diameter in the street in front of the police station and smashed apartments and automobiles nearby.

Q: I saw a television program about archaeological excavation sites in Hawaii dating to the original Polynesian settlers. Is it possible to spend my next vacation volunteering to help in such a project?A: Archaeological digs are "extremely active" in all the Hawaiian islands, according to a spokesman for the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, which has been involved in such work for many years.In general they take the form of habitation sites, canoe sheds, temples and fishing shrines. And each year, the spokesman said, the date of the digs "keeps getting pushed back and back."

John Catania of Bel Air asks, "Is the Earth heavier or lighter ... [than] it was a million years ago? Please don't answer that all things are weightless in space." Where do you get these questions? Well, Earth is "weightless," but it has mass. And there's no doubt that its mass is always growing. We've hurled hundreds of tons off the planet. (The space station's mass alone is 235 tons.) But scientists estimate tens of thousands of tons of space dust and meteors fall to Earth each year.
