Time-honored worship for today's Christians.

Welcome!

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.

Ted-HowdenReverend 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.
