marlob@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - When Willard and Mary Graves got involved in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel at St. Maria Goretti four years ago, they may not have been expecting miracles, but they think they got one nonetheless. "A lady who was writing poetry to Jesus during her visit to the chapel took a picture of the (vessel) that holds the Eucharist and when her film was developed, there were rays of light emanating from it," Willard Graves said. Countless flash pictures have been taken before and after the "miraculous" 2003 photo and nothing even close ever has shown up, he said.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Amid tight security, officials on Tuesday unveiled Letterkenny Army Depot's contribution to the Force Provider system - a combined church, synagogue and mosque called the Containerized Chapel. "In Bosnia, we were living in some nasty warehouses until Force Provider arrived," Depot Commander Col. William Guinn said of the 500-man tent cities of which the Containerized Chapels are now a part. Guinn, who was a battalion commander in that Balkan country, said the chaplain had to make do with the mess hall between 9 and 11 a.m. He conducted services and other pastoral duties between breakfast and lunch at tables still cluttered with salt and pepper shakers and Tabasco sauce bottles.

"We built this church with our bare hands and faith in God," Alfred Tonolo told a large audience in a tent beside Letterkenny Army Depot Chapel on Saturday. Tonolo and other men of the Italian Service Units who were held as prisoners of war at the depot during World War II, built the ecumenical chapel as volunteers, after their work day. Tonolo, 83, who lives in Berwick, Pa., now, helped clean the native fieldstone used in the Florentine-style belfry, which stands 65 feet tall and is 6 feet square.
