The 19th-century stone mansion for sale on Elkton's Main Street offers an impressive list of features: numerous bedrooms and baths, as well as six fireplaces. But there's much more: a fully appointed wedding chapel filled with decades of memories — and even some reservations for next Valentine's Day. Owners Frank and Barbara Smith hope a buyer will retain the chapel, the last remnant of the bustling marriage business that once defined this town on Maryland's northern border. But they also realize that the site, across the street from the Cecil County courthouse, would be a prime location for lawyers' offices.

It is unfortunate that the people who are living in Mays Chapel North did not investigate what was going to be built on the empty lot across from the community ( "Mays Chapel seniors dread opening day of school," Aug. 14). Baltimore County schools had this site for many years. When my son was in elementary school, I thought he would finish elementary school at the new school. He is now 30 years old. Perhaps the people who built Mays Chapel North did not disclose the future of the site to people buying there.

Again, they promised to be there for the good times and the bad, and in sickness and in health — some with young children sitting beside them, or grown grandchildren. But for many of the nearly 70 couples who renewed their vows Sunday, the words proved even more powerful than the first time. The crowd of about 200 packed into pews at the Loyola University Maryland Alumni Memorial Chapel in Baltimore the day before Valentine's Day for the first mass renewal of wedding vows organized by the alumni association.

Years after walking the aisles and kneeling in the pews of St. Michael's Chapel at the Hannah More Academy, Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens and other alumnae returned there yesterday for the reopening of the restored Reisterstown landmark. For Owens and many others, the ceremony at St. Michael's meant more than the renovation of a landmark. Owens spoke about how the chapel was a fixture in her days at the Episcopal boarding school for girls. "This chapel was the heart of the school and meant so much to thousands of women," she said.

The Durand-Williams wedding came off at 1100 hours. Sharp.The first in a production line of 30 post-graduation ceremonies at the Naval Academy Chapel in Annapolis had no singing relatives, no poetry readings, no rose petals in the aisles yesterday. Just plenty of crossed swords, military music and guests named "sir.""My fiancee told me to get the earliest time I could," said Ensign Kyle P. Durand, 23, as he fidgeted in his dress white uniform minutes before the wedding. "I just really want to have her with me here.

Volunteers built a modest chapel in a remote area of northeastern Maryland nearly 200 years ago and dedicated it to the patron saint of their homeland. Volunteers today have saved that simple frame building from ruin. Many descendants of those early settlers will gather at the fully restored St. Patrick's Chapel in Cecil County for a rededication Saturday. They will offer prayers of gratitude to their forebears and to those who have preserved their legacy. The 10 a.m. Mass in a hamlet known as Pilottown is expected to draw the great-grandchildren of the Irish immigrants who settled along the Susquehanna River in the early 19th century.

On a hill above busy Wilkens Avenue, the granite and buff-brick church with its red-tiled dome and green-patinated cupola stands out among the buildings of Charlestown Retirement Community.Unknown to many of the thousands of motorists who pass, however, is that below the 68-foot-high dome is one of the area's best kept secrets: an architectural and artistic masterpiece, the Renaissance-style Chapel of Our Lady of the Angels."It's Baltimore's treasure of art, mosaics, marble and stained glass, unrivaled in this country -- and very few people know it's here," said the Rev. Leo J. Larrivee, 43, who came as a seminarian in 1969 to the Catonsville campus when it was still St. Charles College and Seminary.

I live in Mays Chapel North and now have an elementary school in my backyard. Come a few weeks from now and our peaceful senior development will be chaos, with school buses and screaming children ("Kamenetz is a bully; put him in his place on election day," Aug. 9). We raised our children and are mostly grandparents, so we have nothing against kids, just politicians who are power hungry and are the closest thing to dictators. Our beautiful 10-acre park was destroyed by bulldozers along with our peace and quiet.

It was the summer of 1964, and Harry Williams was in a hurry. One Monday, the 21-year-old asked his girlfriend, Charlotte, to marry him. They were in love and couldn't wait to get married, he remembers. They said "I do" that Saturday. Fifty years later, the couple returned to the place they exchanged vows on that June day. Today, the Historic Little Wedding Chapel in Elkton is the last remnant of what was once a booming wedding industry in this Cecil County town off U.S. 40. "He's been an amazing husband," Charlotte Williams, now 68, said on a recent Saturday, when they took a private bus filled with family members from New Jersey to Maryland to renew their vows.

More than 1,000 mourners gathered Wednesday at the U.S. Naval Academy chapel to say goodbye to Midshipman Hans P. Loewen, remembered as an adventurous, vibrant, funny man whose company mates summed him up in a phrase: "Live like a warrior. " Loewen, 20, of Hampstead, N.C., a midshipman third class majoring in oceanography who was planning to graduate in 2016, died March 29, a week after a skateboarding accident at Assateague State Park left him in a coma. He was the third midshipman to die this year - one was killed in an accident and another, an academy football player, collapsed last month on a practice field suffering brain swelling and bleeding; he died three days later.

The option chosen, known as Option B1, takes students from Padonia International, Pinewood, Pot Spring, and Warren elementaries, including students living as far east as Fox Hollow Golf Course, to Mays Chapel. Option B1 won by a 7-4 vote.

I have attended every meeting regarding the new Mays Chapel school — from which piece of land to use, to the committee's choice of options, to all board and public meetings. The common objective has been how to affect the least number of kids. Pot Springs Elementary has 167 kids over capacity; Padonia has 115 over. Hampton, Pinewood, Riderwood, Warren are not overcrowded. Pinewood, with its close proximity, will be less affected by Option B. It creates a walkable solution for them.

When Our Lady of the Angels Chapel was built and dedicated in the early 20th century, it was surrounded by the rolling hills and open countryside of a farm that served as a retreat for the members of the Catholic order of the Sulpician Fathers.  For years, the chapel was the centerpiece of St. Charles College, a Catholic Seminary that operated at the site on Maiden Choice Lane from 1911 until 1977. Through the years, the chapel, with its vaulted Italian marble walls, 68-foot-tall dome and ornate stone, buff brick, limestone and terra cotta construction has stood as an exquisite example of Italian Renaissance architecture.
