Perhaps the news was lost in all the shuffling of parishes by the Archdiocese of Baltimore in recent years: St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church, a focal point of immigrant life in Fells Point since the mid-19th century, will close in August. It should be further noted that the Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province, who have been running St. Michael's through thick and thin for 160 years, say the decision to close the church has nothing to do with their significant losses in Bernie Madoff's massive fraud.

For years, residents on Riverview Avenue near Annapolis have enjoyed their very own Eden, 17 acres of sunny meadows and vine-tangled woods along the water that was more or less abandoned in the 1980s by the Catholic priests who once swam and picnicked there. "So far, the property has remained pure," said Dick Morin, who lives down the street from the overgrown place, a Severn River landmark that many in the Annapolis area refer to as Priest Point. Today, the Redemptorists of the State of Maryland, an order of priests who founded St. Mary's Parish in Annapolis, are poised to sell the tract to a buyer who wants to build a mansion on it. Sale of the property, worth $1.3 million or more, could help the Catholic church raise much-needed funds for missions at home and abroad.
