Anointing of the Sick

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only to physical but also mental and spiritual illness.  Please contact staff at the rectory at 301-942-2333 to arrange a time for this sacrament to be administered.

Mark Hughes or Fr. Ebuka Mbanude at 301-942-2333.
