WELCOME TO ST. ALBAN'S PARISH.
St. Alban’s is a friendly church that welcomes not just Episcopalians but all newcomers and visitors from any or no tradition. The specific language for each service is printed in a bulletin used by everyone. A Youtube link and bulletin will be emailed each week.
The first service uses the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer (BCP) Rite I liturgy with no music. The larger second Eucharist service is BCP Rite II, often with variations, and includes music with the choir led by our Principal Parish Musician.)
The Rector is the principal celebrant and preacher but is assisted by a strong lay presence of Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors who read lessons, lead the congregation in prayers and assist with Communion. Most of these people are licensed as Lay Readers and Lay Eucharistic Visitors. Acolytes, youth, and adults serve as crucifers, torchbearers, and altar servers.
Significant numbers of the congregation have come to St. Alban’s from other Christian denominations. Even parishioners who are Episcopalian or Anglican come from a diversity of church backgrounds. As a result, we embrace a variety of liturgical experiences in our worship.
There will be two services with Eucharist each Sunday:
– Holy Eucharist, Rite I at 8:00 a.m.
– Holy Eucharist, Rite II at 10:00 a.m. with hymns
Our Sunday Service will be In-person and live streamed on YouTube.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
