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. For more detailed information about our Parish Life and ministries, our Parish Profile is now available for viewing and download in the "About Us" section of our site, or just click HERE.
St. Alban’s Rector Elect = The Rev. Dr. Lin S. Lilley
Ecclesiastes 3 reminds us that “for everything there is a season.”
I am pleased to announce that on March 15, St. Alban’s begins a new season as it enters a time of ministry led by the Rev. Dr. Lin Lilley.
Rev. Dr. Lin was ordained in the Diocese of the Rio Grande in 2011, and then completed additional certification in transitional (interim) ministry. She completed a fifteen-month curacy at St. Francis Rio Rancho before serving for two and half years as interim Priest-in-Charge and Campus Ministry Chaplain of St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Albuquerque. After Canterbury, Lin was called to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Durango, Colorado where she served as interim Rector for a year. In addition to her work in the parish, Lin has served in the Diocese of the Rio Grande in various positions including three years as chair of the Commission on Ministry of the Baptized.
Prior to ordination, Lin had a 35-year career as a trial consultant. Her PhD is in communication, and for several years Lin taught university speech classes and trained secondary speech teachers. She is single but proud of three step-children and 10 grandchildren who all live in Iowa.
We look forward to welcoming Lin to our church family. Please keep Lin in your prayers as she moves from Albuquerque to El Paso and begins her journey with us.
The Stations of the Cross at St. Alban's
Fridays at noon, during lent, please join us as we follow the "Stations of the Cross," a Lenten devotional ritual designed to help us contemplate the Passion of Christ.
Please join us for Wednesday morning Bible Study at 10:30 AM, with the Gospel of Matthew. The regular Noon Mass follows afterwards in the Lady Chapel.
Our Lady of Walsingham
On Sunday, October 16th we celebrated the Feast Day of Our Lady of Walsingham. St. Alban's hosts the only Shrine to Our Lady of Walsingham in the Diocese of the Rio Grande. For more information on our Shrine, and Our Lady of Walsingham's history, click HERE.
After the service we hosted a potluck lunch and Fall Festival in the parish hall, brought to us by our Sunday school (including a pumpkin raffle and cake walk). A good time was had by all!
On October 4 St. Alban's observed the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals, with a “Blessing of the Animals” service.
“All praise to you, Oh Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures,”
Saint Francis of Assisi, from Canticle of the Creatures
