Time-honored worship for today's Christians.


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.



pentecostPentecost Sunday


In the New Testament, Pentecost was the occasion of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ, as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1–31. The feast is also called White Sunday, or "Whitsunday" - in the Uk. This year, the Feast of Pentecost will fall on Sunday, May 15th, and we will have only one service at 9:30 am.

Mark your calendars!

Bishop Jerry Lamb!


On the Sundays of April 10th and 17th, we welcomed visiting Rt. Reverend Jerry Lamb, assisting Bishop of the Diocese of the Rio Grande  (while Padrecita Jeanne Lutz was away on a well deserved vacation break). Bishop Lamb also covered the Wednesday Noon services while Padrecita Lutz was away. We are so grateful for the blessing of his time and fellowship with us. Thank you, Bishop Lamb!

 2015 Summer Youth Trip


St. Alban’s youth enjoyed the beauty of the Sandia Mountains yet again this summer.  They travelled to Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Friday, June 26th to set up camp in the Perko’s back yard at the base of the Sandia Mountains.  Saturday morning they trekked 45 minutes north to the Bandelier National Monument for day of of hiking and history – accompanied by Albuquerque native, and historian, Bruce Bambrook.  The kids ended the day with a campfire and fellowship at their camp site.  Sunday morning they celebrated Mass with Fr. Perko, and then visited a local theatre to enjoy a movie before returning home to El Paso.  It was a great weekend of nature, history, fun and faith!
