Spreading joy

Add one more moving part to The Gift of the Magi program that is a defining outreach of St. Mary’s Seminary in Roland Park.

The Christmas gift-giving program benefits students from Baltimore’s Mother Seton Academy and children whose families are clients of Project PLASE, which addresses homelessness in Baltimore.

The outreach involves not just seminarians, but the campus’s Ecumenical Institute, where the faculty are among those donating gifts.

Youths from Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Edgewater joined the effort in 2015, and this year they were accompanied for the first time by teens from Our Lady of Sorrows in West River, the church with which it is forming an Archdiocese of Baltimore pastorate in southern Anne Arundel County.

Michael Lagonigro

If you Google “save my Catholic marriage,” one of the top search results is for the Retrouvaille Marriage Help Program for Struggling Couples.

Michael Lagonigro can attest to the program’s strength. Lagonigro and his wife, Theresa, attended a weekend-long Retrouvaille session in 2005 after hitting a bump in their marriage.

“By Sunday morning, I knew we were going to be OK,” said Lagonigro, a parishioner of St. John in Westminster.

Lagonigro believes his faith was strengthened through Retrouvaille.
