A solemn high Mass beginning at 10 a.m. today will be followed by a reception and tours of the historic church at Eutaw Street and Madison Avenue.

Mount Calvary Episcopal Church in Baltimore on Sunday became the first congregation in Maryland to vote to break ties with the Episcopal Church and take steps to join the Roman Catholic Church. The small Anglo Catholic parish at Madison Avenue and Eutaw Street was feeling increasingly alienated from the Episcopal Church as it accepted priests who did not believe in what most of the congregation saw as the foundations of the faith, according to Warren Tanghe, a former Episcopal priest who is now attending St. Mary's Seminary in Roland Park and preparing for ordination in the Catholic church.

Bitter feuding among deadlocked board members is threatening to close Joseph Richey House, Baltimore's pioneering AIDS and cancer hospice. "It's a question of authority. We do not have any beef with the palliative care given there. It's America's best hospice," said the Rev. John William Klein, rector of Mount Calvary Church. The church and the Episcopal Sisters of the Poor share oversight of the hospice. Each side has three members on the board of directors, creating the current stalemate over control.

A bitter dispute among board members of Joseph Richey House has been resolved, ensuring that Baltimore's pioneering AIDS and cancer hospice will remain open. The feud - which involved a stalemate between three board members of the Mount Calvary Church and three board members from the Episcopal All Saints Sisters of the Poor - was settled this month through negotiations led by Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Joseph H. H. Kaplan. Lawsuits filed by the church and the nuns against one other had threatened the future of the hospice, which the two groups created in 1980 and named after a former rector of Mount Calvary.
