In 1787, Elizabeth Muggs passed away at the age of 45 and became the first person laid to rest in the St. John's Episcopal Church cemetery. On Sunday, the 213-year-old cemetery on Mulberry Street in Hagerstown was to be rededicated as parishioners gathered after morning services at the historic site. Although little space remains in the small cemetery, there are families who still have plots. In recent years, most burials have been the interment of ashes of parishioners and their families.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - More than 50 parishioners from Trinity Lutheran Church stood in a cold, windy field south of Greencastle Sunday afternoon and watched as their pastor, a bishop and church leaders dug shovels into the ground to pave the way for their new church building. "We've looked forward to this day," said the Rev. William DeHaas, church pastor. The congregation of 130 members had until last fall called a 70-year-old edifice at 145 East Baltimore St. home. It will move into its new 6,000-square-foot church by the end of this year.

Over the past eight years attendance at the church has risen from 20 people each week to more than 350, Norris said.

FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. - The crane hoisting the glimmering gold onion dome to its place on the roof of the new church Wednesday brought a new era to the religious landscape of Franklin County. It also meant the realization of a 30-year-old dream for a Chambersburg, Pa., couple. It took a crane and a handful of workmen to haul the 1-ton fiberglass dome to the top of St. Mary Orthodox Church being built at 2083 Linclon Way East. Services could begin as soon as late August if most of the construction is completed by then.
