Baltimore’s Old St. Paul’s hosts Schaefer service

The funeral for former Gov. William Donald Schaefer will be held next week at Old St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Baltimore.

A spokeswoman for the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland says Schaefer was a member of the church, and served on its vestry. Old St. Paul’s is the closest Episcopal church to City Hall, where Schaefer was on the City Council and served as mayor.

The rector, the Rev. Mark Stanley, will officiate at the funeral at 11 a.m. April 27.

The church seats about 850 people. There will be overflow viewing at a site next door.

Other plans for honoring Schaefer include his lying in repose from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday at the State House in Annapolis. The next day, Schaefer will lie in repose at City Hall.
