DUE TO COVID-19 AND OUR TRANSITION PERIOD, WE WILL HAVE ONE ZOOM SERVICE WITH LIMITED IN-PERSON WORSHIP ON SUNDAY AT 9:30AM. THIS WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
St. Alban’s is a friendly church that welcomes not just Episcopalians but all newcomers and visitors from any or no tradition. Due to Covid-19 our worship service will be Sunday at 9:30 A.M via Zoom and Limited in-person worship. The specific language for each service is printed in a bulletin used by everyone. A zoom link and bulletin will be emailed each week.
During this time, we will hold only one service at 9:30 A.M. with alternating use of Rites I and II. (Prior to Covid -19 The first service uses the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer (BCP) Rite I liturgy with no music. The larger 10:30 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.
