Welcome

Grace and peace to you in our Lord Jesus Christ!

Announcements

  • Who Are We?

    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.


    As a Welcoming Church, we fully welcome transgender, gay, lesbian, and bisexual people, including their participation in all areas and at all levels in the life of the congregation.

  • Sunday Worship

    Sunday worship services are held at 8:00 and 10:30 am. The 10:30 service is streamed live and is also available for later viewing on the St. Albans Arcata YouTube channel (link opens in a new window).

    Click on this link to view or download the Sunday Bulletin, which contains the order of worship, including music and prayers, for the 10:30 service. If you do not have a Book of Common Prayer, you can access one online at this link: bcponline.org. Contact the church office by email or phone if you have questions.

  • The Good Book Club

    The Good Book Club is back for Epiphany, this time with the Book of Exodus! Deacon Cindy and Mother Nancy are teaming up again, this time to offer a 30-minute period of reflection on passages from Exodus before Compline on Mondays. We will follow the ancient method of Lectio Divina, a contemplative way of reading the Bible that dates to the early centuries of the Christian Church. 

    The second book of the Bible, Exodus recounts the journey of the Israelites from slavery to freedom. It is a foundational text for Jews and for Christians: we will read the great stories of Moses, from his discovery by Pharaoh’s daughter on the bank of the river to the burning bush to his presentation of the Ten Commandments. Along the way, we will encounter God’s covenant and explore the grand theme of redemption.

    You can find the reading schedule that begins on Epiphany, January 6 at goodbookclub.org/readings. Join us at 7:30 pm Mondays beginning January 10. For more information, including a list of resources and webinars and the Zoom link, contact Mother Nancy.

  • Morning Prayer

    Morning Prayer is a service of the Daily Office, and one of the anchors of our Episcopal/Anglican tradition.  Mondays and Wednesdays, Morning Prayer meets at 8:30 am via Zoom, and on Fridays at 8:30 am, we will meet at the church in-person, with candles, vestments, and chanting – and then coffee in the kitchen, all together! If you would like to join us online, contact Mother Nancy at revnancysstreufert@gmail.com for the Zoom invitation. To participate fully in the service, you will need a Book of Common Prayer, a 1982 Hymnal, and a Bible (NRSV) to share in the readings. All are welcome! 

  • Compline

    Please join us Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings at 8 p.m. for Compline via Zoom. In this short service (15 minutes) from the Prayer Book, we offer thanks for the day that is past and ask God for restful sleep.  Contact Deacon Cindy by email at cmwoods1730@gmail.com if you wish to join us.
