Anointing of the Sick
This Sacrament of healing may be celebrated by anyone who is seriously ill. Individuals are encouraged not to wait until death is imminent before requesting this sacrament. Anointing may take place more than once in an individual’s lifetime.

Communal celebrations of the Anointing of the Sick are held the second Sunday of the month following the 12:15 pm Mass.

Please contact Deacon Fred (410-969-2785) to request Anointing. Please notify the parish office when a parishioner is in the hospital or ill, especially if he/she is unable to attend Mass and wishes to receive Holy Communion. We will also help to arrange for Pastoral Visitors, if desired.


Marriage (aka, Matrimony)
Couples preparing for marriage are asked to call Deacon Fred (410-969-2785) at least SIX MONTHS before their desired wedding date. All couples are required to participate in a Marriage Preparation program.


Holy Orders (aka, Ordination)
If you have ever thought about becoming a priest or deacon, God might be calling you to serve! Don’t be afraid to reach out to talk things over and get more information. Deacon Fred (410-969-2785) is happy to help!
