Time-honored worship for today's Christians.

 

Welcome!

Thank you for worshipping with us at Saint Alban's! We are happy that you are here. All baptized Christians are welcome to fully participate in worship and take Communion alongside members of the parish.

The Church of Saint Alban is now the oldest Episcopal Church in El Paso, and part of the Diocese of the Rio Grande. The parish is moving in exciting directions as we strive to continue share Christ's message of love and forgiveness in a stressed-out world.  Come and join us as we move toward our 100th year of common witness and worship.

Mass in Memory of Ted Howden, Tues., Dec. 11th, 11:00 AM

Howden with DRG logo

On Tuesday, Dec. 11th the Diocese of the Rio Grande will honor Episcopal Chaplain Ted Howden with a church service in each of the four Diocesan Deaneries. In the Southwest Deanery, St. Alban's will host the Mass. Seventy-six years ago, Dec. 11, the Rev. Chaplain Frederick B. "Ted" Howden Jr. died of starvation-induced pellagra in a Japanese Prisoner of War camp after selflessly giving his rations to others he felt needed them more. We observe his martyrdom as a measure of the price of ministry in the struggle for freedom. When World War II broke out Fr. Howden held the rank of Captain in the New Mexico State Guard, and was the Chaplain to the 200th Coast Artillery when it was sent to the Philippines in Sept. 1941. At the Fall of Bataan and Corregidor to Japanese forces in April 1942, Fr. Howden and his fellow soldiers were made prisoners of war and forced to make the Bataan Death March during which some 18,000 died.If you cannot attend the service, please observe a moment of silence at 11 AM and pray for peace in the world in the name of the one who first gave his life for us all, Jesus Christ.
