Gov. Martin O'Malley will host a breakfast in Annapolis Tuesday with some gay activists and members of the religious community to discuss his bill legalizing same-sex marriage. The governor is expected to introduce his same-sex marriage bill this evening. He told reporters that the legislation will clarify exemptions for religious organizations that don't want to participate or honor same-sex unions. "If there's a difference [this year] it will probably be in regard to the respect for religious freedom and making that a little clearer in this bill," O'Malley said.

People Acting Together in Howard, a coalition of 15 churches, one mosque and several citizens groups, wanted both Ulman and Kittleman to support their plans for more aggressive youth employment programs and more help to allow the elderly to stay in their homes.

Those limits were fashioned by the court in a 1971 case involving public salary subsidies for parochial school teachers.

If you're not in good shape, forget about visiting Sister Francesca. She gingerly avoided my car as I pulled into The Villa, a unique convent near Towson for retired nuns. We walked together to the entrance, she with her stout walking stick in hand, me shuffling papers into a file folder that was threatening to self-destruct.I admired what good shape she was in for someone probably in her 70s."Had a good walk, Sister?" I asked, holding the outer door open for her. "Yes, it's a beautiful day," she replied, holding open the inner door for me. "I got in my whole hour-and-a-half walk."

Unable to work as she cared for her dying brother and raised her adopted granddaughter, Deborah Reddy was in desperate need of money and a place to live. The 54-year-old worked as a baby sitter, earning just $14,000 a year. She found a place in a new low-income development at a renovated Franciscan convent near the old Memorial Stadium. On her first visit there recently, as she passed under the statue of Saint Elizabeth and walked through the front door, her memory was suddenly jolted.

Howard County's religious communities are among the county's oldest institutions, their quaint and elegant churches scattered throughout the area, their cemeteries the resting place of local settlers. But take a drive around Columbia, and it is easy to find evidence of the county's newest settlers and their worship communities. Small placards appear on weekends, announcing the presence of faith groups in village centers, public schools, industrial park buildings, and in the buildings of older, established congregations.

As images and news about the war in Iraq have loomed in recent weeks, Howard County religious leaders have been focusing on messages of peace. Members of many area churches and synagogues have been straddling the fine line between support for U.S. troops overseas and discussing whether the war is just. Whether their members have supported the war or opposed military action, many congregations simply prayed for a peaceful and just resolution. "Our congregation is very divided about this particular war," said Rabbi Sonya Starr of Columbia Jewish Congregation.

In a holiday season that traditionally begins with gratitude at Thanksgiving and ends with gift-giving at Christmas and Hanukkah, religious communities in Howard County are sponsoring outreach projects that demonstrate both impulses. "Especially this year, I think it's time to be thankful for everything we have and to help others," said John Fiorello of Ellicott City, whose family is among the 350 from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church in Ellicott City who assembled food baskets delivered last week to families in Howard County and Baltimore.

Edward Kenny, 43.His research -- in France and England -- involved learning how to help a religious community determine its own mission and translate that mission into programs with budgets and staffing.
