Greetings Friends,
Due to unforeseen circumstances, on Sunday December 6, 2020 will be holding Morning Prayer instead of a Eucharist service. Father Michael will still be leading the service, he will just be leading us from his house. We will have a projector and screen in the sanctuary so that we will all be able to see and hear Father Michael during the service.

September 12, 2020

Beginning this coming Sunday September 13, 2020 we will begin live streaming Morning Prayer Service from Saint Alban’s on our very own YouTube channel! Morning Prayer will begin at 9:30am.  Since Allen County is in the color Orange in regard to Covid numbers we are able to have a few people in the building to preform the service but unfortunately no more than that. We are very excited about being able to stream from the building and hopefully this will give some of you a little comfort to be able to see our Sanctuary. We will of course be following all of the guidelines set forth by the Diocese so that everyone stays safe. With this technology we plan to continue live streaming the services even after we are able to worship in person so that anyone that isn’t able to come may still be able to follow along with our church services.

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.

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.
