CAMBRIDGE -- Dorchester County-born slave Harriet Ross Tubman was honored as a saint here yesterday in the Episcopal church where her owner had been a baptized member.The service of song and word in the 303-year-old Great Choptank Parish would probably have amazed the 19th-century freedom fighter in her own time.But it was extraordinary enough even in present-day Cambridge. Whites and blacks packed Christ Episcopal Church, as the parish is also known, to "re-examine the mistakes of our past," in the words of the Rev. Linda Wheatley, one of the participants.

A federal judge has agreed to allow the ousted rector of a Prince George's County Episcopal parish to remain with his family in the rectory until the end of the month. U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte had ordered the Rev. Samuel L. Edwards to move out of the rectory at Christ Church in Accokeek by yesterday. Messitte ruled last week in favor of acting Bishop Jane Holmes Dixon of Washington, who filed suit seeking the court's help in enforcing her decision not to confirm Edwards' hiring as rector by the church's vestry.

Beyond heavy wrought-iron gates, a wavy brick path leads to the side steps of a gray stone, Gothic Revival parish house, once belonging to Christ Episcopal Church. Building and gardens are snuggly tucked behind the grand townhouses of Mount Vernon's Chase Street. David Egan opens the building's double doors with an invitation to cross the threshold. The scent of old wood and beeswax wafts through the entrance area, conjuring memories of services, celebrations and quiet reflection. The fragrance lingers in the recessed, arched, diamond-leaded glass windows and in the intricately carved woodwork soaring to 15-foot ceilings.
