Grace and peace to you in our Lord Jesus Christ!

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. You will find here a window into the life and ministries of Saint Alban's. We are a community committed to Jesus Christ and carrying out His mission. For members of the parish I hope that you will find information and resources to support you in your daily life and ministry. For those new to Saint Alban's, this is an invitation to connect and join us as a community that bears Christ's name. In other words, I hope you will make the leap of faith from a virtual visit to an actual in-the-flesh visit. Come and see!

Many blessings,

The Rev. Sara L. Potter, Rector

    St. Alban's is a community of disciples growing
    into the full maturity of Christ.

    Our mission is to be a community worshipping in the Episcopal tradition; devoted to God through prayer, study and action; faithful in welcoming the stranger; and serving the needs of our parish and beyond.

  • Wednesdays in Advent--Holden Evening Prayer & Soup Supper

    Please join us Wednesdays in Advent (December 6, 13 and 20) at 5:30 p.m. for Holden Evening Prayer—a simple sung setting of vespers in the sanctuary—followed by a meal of soup and bread and a simplified Eucharist in the Parish Hall.  Experience some joy and spirit as part of your Advent preparations. All are welcome.  There is a sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall to help with bread and soup.
