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,

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

  • Training for Licensed Lay Ministries

    On Saturday, March 30 St. Alban’s will host a deanery wide Lay Ministry Training for worship ministries of the Episcopal Church that require licensing.  Training will be offered for those currently licensed and those seeking licensing for the first time for Eucharistic Ministers (aka chalice bearers), Eucharistic Visitors (those who take communion to homebound members of the congregation), Worship Leaders (who lead public worship) and Preachers (for relicensing only).  All those who are currently licensed need to have their licenses renewed.  If you are unable to participate in the training you will need to make alternative training arrangements with the Rector.  The Rev. Lesley McCloghrie will offer an overview of the Book of Common Prayer which is open to all but especially encouraged for new worship leaders. Registration forms are available in the Narthex (entry way)and need to be returned to the Church office by Friday, March 22.
