“Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord.” James 5:14
Thus, from the earliest years of the church, we have called upon the Lord through the community to assist those who are ill of mind or body. All those struggling with illness, addictions or complications of aging are welcome to receive the sacrament. The Pastorate of St. John and St. Joseph on Carrollton Manor offers the Anointing of the Sick following all Masses on the first weekend of every month. Additionally, in cases of need, please call the parish office at (301) 662-8288 (St. John) or (301) 663-0907 (St. Joseph on Carrollton Manor) and arrangements will be made to celebrate the sacrament.
