In-Person Worship Services Suspended till May 16

The suspension of public worship for the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland has been extended to May 16th. Although we cannot meet together, we continue to pray for the people of Remington, and to seek ways in which we can love and serve. We are deeply touched by all the support neighbors are giving to one another at this time.

The Food Pantry continues to open on Wednesday mornings from 9-10am.

Please note the Thrift Shop is closed for the health and safety of all our community.

The Cathedral of the Incarnation will livestream Sunday morning worship (March 29th, at 11am). All are welcome to join in! This Sunday the Gospel reading is John 11:1-45 and the Psalm is 130.
“I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him; in his word is my hope.” (Psalm 130)

Let us all continue to pray for the people and concerns of Remington. 

Thank you, Seawall, for offering snow removal this winter!

Guardian Angel is always a place that's run on a shoestring, powered largely by volunteers and help from the larger community. That's especially true right now as we cope with the loss of Alice and search for a new priest to lead the parish.

So I was relived and grateful in early December, as the junior warden aka guy in charge of the grounds and buildings, when Andrew McCrumb from Seawall Development offered to lump Guardian Angel into the snow removal arrangement the company had for Remington Row at no cost to Guardian Angel. It was a big weight off of our shoulders at an especially crunched time.

So even though we got basically no snow in the end, the leadership at Guardian Angel would like to thank Andrew, Shawn Brown, Thibault Manekin, and Seawall in general for supporting the work we do at Guardian Angel in this way. Thank you!
