FIND OUT ABOUT CHURCH CLOSINGS AND IMPORTANT CHURCH INFO…
As winter begins we are reminded of the harsh weather we can sometimes have. On very rare occasions we may have to close Saint Alban’s and cancel services. You can find out if we are closed in three ways. First, if the weather is iffy, then please check your email for a cancellation notice (Please note if you do not get periodic church emails from Father Dan, then you are not in his email address book. To fix this simply give him your email address.) Second, to get cancellation and other important church info texted to your phone simply text “follow StAlbanFW” to 40404. Finally, we will do our best to tell the TV stations of closings. Of course, if you do not feel comfortable coming out in bad weather, then please know the Lord would rather you be safe and stay home.
