Some leaned on their canes. Others leaned on each other. One by one, the parishioners of St. Peter the Apostle hobbled up the concrete steps of the graceful Grecian-style church to bid goodbye to 165 years of history. Yesterday's was the last Christmas Mass at the church at Hollins and Poppleton streets in West Baltimore. By February, the parish will merge with two others in the area. Though the building will still be used for the occasional wedding and funeral, it will no longer hold regular worship services.

A renowned city architect designed St. Peter the Apostle Church 170 years ago. Irish laborers dug the foundation by hand, donating their labor to build it. And its early parishioners spared no expense in adorning their house of worship. They installed an elaborate white marble altar, with a life-size statue of the church's patron saint towering over it, and placed intricately carved angels at the sides of the tabernacle. Now those angels are gone, donated to All Saints parish in Liberty Heights.
