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.

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!
