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.
2015 Thanksgiving Feast
St. Alban's will once again gather together to ask the Lord's blessing on Thanksgiving Day. There are two sign-up sheets in the parish hall, one for attendance and one for cooks, including those who are willing to cook the turkeys. Parishioners are asked to bring side dishes, enough to feed your family plus 6-8 other people. Friends are welcome! If possible, please include them on the sign-up sheet. With questions, please contact Donna Jones. Thanksgiving Eucharist will be at the normal Wednesday Mass the day before. On Thanksgiving Day, Noonday Prayers will preceed the dinner at 12:30 in the Lady Chapel.
Very Special Announcements:
Blessings, gratitude and congratulations to Farther William Martin, who celebrates the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood on November 13th.
This Sunday, November 15th, we bid farewell to St. Alban's longest-enrolled member, Nancy Stanley, who was baptized at this church and has attended faithfully all her life. Nancy is a former choir director and senior warden, and remains a Daughter of the King. She is moving to Dallas to be closer to her family. Please make it a point to visit with Nancy after the 10:30 service. Nancy - we are sad to see you leave, but wish you all blessings, and take heart in your promise to stay in touch and visit when you can.
2015 Summer Youth Trip
St. Alban’s youth enjoyed the beauty of the Sandia Mountains yet again this summer. They
travelled to Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Friday, June 26th to set up camp in the Perko’s back yard at the base of the Sandia Mountains. Saturday morning they trekked 45 minutes north to the Bandelier National Monument for day of of hiking and history – accompanied by Albuquerque native, and historian, Bruce Bambrook. The kids ended the day with a campfire and fellowship at their camp site. Sunday morning they celebrated Mass with Fr. Perko, and then visited a local theatre to enjoy a movie before returning home to El Paso. It was a great weekend of nature, history, fun and faith!
