Service Announcements

Due to COVID-19, Saint Albans Fort Wayne has suspended all services and in-person activities until further notice.

However you may visit The Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana for updates within the Diocese and the leadership in our Diocese has also put together a list of daily prayer services for everyone in our faith communities. During this trying time it is extremely important for all of us to hang on to our faith. Since we are unable to worship together in person these different services will allow us to worship together virtually. They are still working on adding a few more service opportunities and we will send those out when we have them. Continue to stay safe and remember to pray for all affected by COVID-19.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Box Tops for Education has gone digital on their products. If you want to continue saving these for Shambaugh Elementary School like we have been doing, you will have to do it individually on your own phone. You can go on their website and learn how to sign up. You may want to switch to another school that your children go to or have gone to in the past. I just have a plain cell phone that doesn’t have all the bells and whistles! The box we had at the church for people to put their saved box tops in has been removed. We thank all of you who participated in the past.
