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. 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.

stations of_the_crossStations of the Cross

 

On Good Friday, March 30, at 12:00 noon, there will be a service with Stations of the Cross in the main sanctuary. The Stations of the Cross is a 14-step devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day and his journey to the crucifixion. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of that day, beginning with His condemnation. This service is commonly used as a mini pilgrimage, as an individual moves from station to station, recalling and meditating on each specific event from the walk to Golgotha. Specific prayers are recited at each point, then the individual moves on to the next station until all 14 are complete. We invite you to join us for this powerful journey in prayer, meditation and reflection.
