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.

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.

Small Group Dinners in March

Please join us for four Tuesdays in March (March 3, 10, 17, 24)  from 6-7:30 p.m. at the homes of parishioners for a simple supper, book discussion and worship.  One additional group will meet at Saint Alban's from 12-1:30 p.m. each Tuesday.  Each group is limited to 10 participants so sign-ups are required.  We will be reading People of the Way by Dwight Zscheile.

Bible and Prayer Book Challenge

Please join us in reading together this year the Psalms and New Testament with selections from the Book of Common Prayer.  See the Resources section for the reading list.

The Deacon in the Details: A Time for Action, Worship and Reflection

Save the date! Saturday, March 14. 


All* who share in leadership of liturgical ministries are invited to join our deanery’s diaconal ministry group as we explore the ins and outs of liturgy, that is, how our worship when we gather and our lives in the wider community are interconnected.


We will meet from 9:30 a.m. to  3:30 p.m. at Saint Alban’s Episcopal Church, Arcata.  The Rev. K. Lesley McCloghrie, Ms. Jan Ramsay and Deacon Phina Borgeson will facilitate our learning and exploring together.  Look for registration details in mid-February.
