Blowing Up the Church

Blowing Up the Church is an opportunity for Christian Formation leaders from the congregations in our diocese to come together at Camp Hardtner to create stronger bonds, exchange ideas and resources, and hear a dynamic speaker who will challenge us to think and talk creatively about what Formation for children, youth, and adults can look like in our diocese.  

Fr. Whit and a group of four parishioners will travel to the event from St. Alban's. Expect a full report on Sunday!

Parish Member Directory

St. Alban’s is working on updating our member directory. This directory includes family names, phone numbers (home and cell), mailing address, email, birthday and anniversary information.

Please check your information on the sample pages in the parish hall, if it is okay – please indicate that you’ve checked with a check-mark or initials. If changes need to be made, just cross out and correct the information. Thanks so much!

St. Alban’s Shuttle Committee

St. Alban’s is forming a committee of people interested in providing a regular ride to church for people who cannot drive themselves. The group would be arranged on a rotational schedule and perhaps give a ride to one or two people once a month. This service would be provided for the 10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist. You should have a vehicle that is appropriate for this purpose, because the folks who need a ride may have limited mobility. 

 If you are interested in serving as part of this important ministry, please contact the church office. Thanks!
