In 1692 -- 300 years ago -- the Maryland Assembly established the Church of England as the colony's official religion. The colonial legislators divided counties into parishes and made provisions for taxing inhabitants for "the building of churches and support of the clergy." Their actions ensured that for much of its first century in Maryland, Anglicanism would enjoy a privileged status.Things changed dramatically in 1776 for all religious groups when Maryland adopted a Declaration of Rights.

Their 96-year-old church in Roland Park needed an overhaul, which meant the 600- strong congregation of St. David's Episcopal Church needed somewhere else to go. A mile down the road in Hampden stood St. Mary's Church, bereft of its Episcopal worshippers since Christmas Eve 1999. Yesterday morning, the churchgoers - marking the end of a half-year in the best temporary quarters they could hope for - said goodbye to the Hampden chapel and marched the mile north, eager for the first glimpse of their restored sanctuary.

The rector of the largest church in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland offended some members of his congregation and inspired others when during a sermon this month he blasted President Bush and the Iraq war, asserting that the president misled the country. The Rev. Paul D. Tunkle of the Church of the Redeemer in North Baltimore has since apologized to his congregation, and on Sunday he held a forum attended by those who believed his comments were too much political advocacy and too little spiritual guidance.

From the opening hymn, "Lift High The Cross," to the fragrant incense during Holy Communion, the ceremony at Memorial Episcopal Church in Bolton Hill was largely traditional. Standing before the altar as the late afternoon sun cast rays of light across the nave, the couple exchanged vows and rings, promising to honor and comfort each other and forsake all others. When the ceremony ended, they strode up the aisle hand-in-hand, bathed in camera flashes and the applause of friends and family.

MEETING in Baltimore this week, the Episcopal House of Bishops is called upon to heal a divided Episcopal Church for the second time in two centuries. The first division had to do with theological nuance; the second has to do with human sexuality.The first was in 1792. A unanimous vote of the clergy and laity had just named Thomas John Claggett bishop of the Diocese of Maryland. At that time there were just four other Episcopal bishops in the United States. With the exception of Samuel Seabury of Connecticut, all the American prelates had been consecrated in England at the hands of the English bishops.
