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 Blessing of the Animals

    The Blessing of the Animals will be on Sunday, October 9th at 4pm. 

    Invite your friends, grab your pets and join us at this year's Blessing of the Animals. This one hour service begins with a light meal served family style after which pets will be blessed at 4:30 pm.

    The Blessing of the Animals is a tradition that occurs in recognition of the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
