No, you don't have to be Catholic to get counseling from Catholic Charities, Inc. In fact, says Peggy Whyte, the agency's executive director, 70 percent of those served by the group's Washington County operations aren't Catholic. Catholic Charities' main local office is at 229 N. Potomac St., a house that was once a parsonage and later the headquarters of Family Services, Inc. When that agency fell on hard times and dissolved in June 1995, Catholic Charities was ready immediately to fill the void with many of the same type of services.

United Way's annual Day of Caring, which in the past has focused on things like sprucing up county parks and removing graffiti from city buildings, will focus on seven non-profit agencies' needs July 19 with an army of more than 150 volunteers. We commend this effort, which will save contributors' dollars for more important uses. Armed with a $10,000 donation from Citicorp Credit Services, the volunteers who begin work at 7 a.m. that day will (among other things) wash windows, paint, install a computer and software system, tear up old carpet and lay new floor coverings and replace or repair damaged ceiling tiles.
