The third building, perhaps where the cardinal stayed, was not visible in a Google Street View Image dated July 2009, but had been constructed by May 2012.
Sources told CNA that Cardinal McCarrick lived with the IVE community at St. John Baptist de la Salle during his retirement, after residing for a period at the Redemptoris Mater Seminary of the Archdiocese of Washington.
One source close to the Archdiocese of Washington told CNA that the cardinal had for a time an IVE brother in formation living in his residence, which was on the parish property but separate from the house of formation.
An additional source also told CNA that McCarrick had young priest and seminarian assistants while living with the IVE, but did not comment on whether any seminarian resided with the cardinal.
An Archdiocese of Washington spokesperson did not confirm those reports. The spokesperson told CNA that Cardinal McCarrick “made his own living arrangements for his retirement,” as well as his own arrangements for secretarial assistance.
“I can’t comment on how long he was at the John Baptist de la Salle property,” the spokesperson added.
Cardinal McCarrick is reportedly close to the IVE, often conferring ordination for the Immaculate Conception province, doing so as late as 2017.
Directories from the Archdiocese of Washington demonstrate that a priest of the Institute of the Incarnate Word, Father Andrew Whiting, served as secretary to Cardinal McCarrick from at least 2014 through 2017. That priest was ordained a deacon by McCarrick in 2013, and a priest in 2014.
The 2018 directory lists Brother Andy Kemtz, also a member of the Institute of the Incarnate Word, as secretary to the cardinal, and gives St. John Baptist de la Salle as his residence.
In recent months, Cardinal McCarrick has been the subject of several accusations of child sexual abuse and sexual misconduct involving seminarians and priests.
He was suspended from exercising his ministry in June following an investigation into a charge of sexual abuse, and last week he was accused of the sexual abuse of a minor.
McCarrick was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of New York, and then served there as an auxiliary bishop.

He was bishop of two New Jersey dioceses before he was appointed Archbishop of Washington in 2000, where he served until his retirement in 2006.
In 2005 and 2007, two men received settlements from New Jersey dioceses over their abuse at the hands of McCarrick, who abused them while they were seminarians and priests.
The Institute of the Incarnate Word could not be reached for comment.
Correction: Cardinal McCarrick most recently performed ordinations for the Institute in 2017, not 2018, as was stated in an earlier version of this story, though McCarrick attended the Institute's 2018 ordinations. The story has been corrected.
