The Rev. John T. Carter, a retired Roman Catholic Navy chaplain who later pastored several churches in Western Maryland, died Tuesday at the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center of respiratory failure. He was 71. "Our Uncle Martin Hyland was a priest, and I think he was somewhat of an influence on my brother as well as the priest at St. Ambrose," his sister, Sally Louise Protokowicz of Bel Air, said. "Since he was 14, he always wanted to be a priest. It was the only thing he ever wanted to do. " The son of Blight G. Carter, a Baltimore Sun photoengraver, and Agnes L. Hyland, a homemaker, John Thomas Carter, one of seven children, was born in Baltimore and raised in the city's Pimlico neighborhood.

For nearly 20 years, Thomas Roberts kept quiet, hiding the secret of sexual abuse by the high school chaplain he sought counseling from in 1987. When another young man who had attended a different school came forward in 1993 with similar allegations against the priest, Roberts still kept quiet. Yesterday, as a Baltimore County judge prepared to sentence Jerome F. Toohey Jr. for the sexual abuse that occurred over three years, Roberts kept quiet no longer. "Father Jeff lived nearly 20 years in the freedom of my silence," the 33-year-old former Calvert Hall College High School student told the judge.

"Aunt Millie" - as soldiers receiving care packages in Afghanistan affectionately refer to 95-year-old Vivian "Millie" Bailey - doesn't see an end in sight for the work her group does. Yet she and her volunteers are more than willing to take on more. "Whatever number of troops we have over there is too many," says the Running Brook resident, who has lived in Columbia since 1970. "Any time you have to send them toilet paper, and then any president says [the country] is meeting our troops' needs… well, that just makes me want to stand up and fuss and cuss," Bailey said.

Capt. Ryan Jean wanted to perform well on the Army's psychological evaluation for soldiers. But he also wanted to answer the questions honestly. So when he was asked whether he believed his life had a lasting purpose, Jean, an atheist, saw no choice but to say no. Those and other responses, Jean says, won him a trip to see the post chaplain, who berated him for his lack of faith. "He basically told me that if I don't get right with God, then I'm worthless," said Jean, now an intelligence officer at Fort Meade.

Even rabbis — both he and his wife had their own congregations — want a little adventure. "We had lived in Melbourne for eight years and the Navy looked a little like Australia — it was a small, underserved Jewish community — and we had the chance to see the world," Phillips said.
