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.
Sunday, November 27th, is the first Sunday of Advent, our Christian New Year. That Sunday has been designated Stewardship Sunday at St. Alban's. We hope you will join us as we begin the Advent Season.
Reverend Fredrick B. Howden
December 11th, will be a special day to honor the life of Reverend Frederick B. Howden. He was an Episcopal priest and chaplain of the 200th Coastal Artillery when they were federalized and sent to the Philippines just prior to World War II. He and his men went through the Bataan Death March. Shortly thereafter, Chaplain Howden died in a prisoner of war camp, having given away most of his food to fellow prisoners. The Diocese of the Rio Grande is sponsoring him for inclusion in the Episcopal Calendar of Saints. Prayers will be said for him at both masses on this day. For more information on these services please click here.
On Sunday, December 18th at 5:00 p.m. the St. Alban's choir is presenting A Festival of Lessons and Carols. This is a reading of Sacred Scriptures for the Advent and Christmas Season, with anthems and hymns sung by choir and congregation. The public is invited and there will be a reception after the service in the Parish Hall. All are welcome!
Advent and Christmas Schedule:
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
On June 19th we celebrate the Feast of Saint Alban, our patron saint. Alban was a Roman soldier in Britain and the first person in that country to die for the Christian faith whose name we know. For that special day we will go down to one Mass at 9:30 am. Mark your calendars!
