Today July 10, 2022, we celebrate the Holy Baptism of Grayson Robert Frede!
Mark your calendars: the St. Alban’s annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper makes its return after nearly two years on Tuesday, March 1st, 2022 from 5 – 7 pm!
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, 3/2/22.
-For Ash Wednesday this year St. Alban’s will be offering two services; one at Noon which will be a spoken service and one at 7 p.m. which will include music. Both services will include the proper liturgy for Ash Wednesday followed by the Eucharist and both will take place in the sanctuary.
-The 10 a.m. Bible Study on Ash Wednesday will be moved up to 10:30 a.m. so that those attending may conveniently attend the noon service directly after the class.
Stations Of The Cross begins Friday March 4th, 2022 at 6pm.

St. Alban’s parishioners: Please see the Pastoral letter from Bishop Doug Sparks (below) on the updated COVID-19 Guidelines. Effective January 1, masks will be required inside our building (IF) Allen County goes to the Red Advisory Level, we currently are in orange. I’ve been in contact with both Fr. Michael and Cindy, and we wanted to send out this communication to you so that you can be prepared, since things could change rather quickly. In the mean time as a cautionary measure, we do ask that you follow social distancing in the pews, and at coffee hour. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
John LorenzenJunior Warden, St. Alban’s
Thank you to everyone that came out to celebrate with us!!!
What a fun celebration on 10/3/21! Thank you to everyone who came out!
Just a few announcements!
The Return of Coffee Hour (Sort Of!)! – Beginning May 2nd, we will begin a modified return to post-Communion Coffee Hour/Fellowship with the following qualifications: there will still be no food; it will be bring-your-own-coffee (with lids!) and social distancing is to still be practiced. Whenever possible, we ask that people gather outside, on the walkway outside the front doors.
Happy Mother’s day…Don’t forget that Sunday, May 9th is Mother’s day. Whether your Mom is still with us or with the Lord, come to church Sunday May 12th to say a special prayer for her. May God bless all Mother’s and their most sacred vocation in life!
FYI: Fr. Michael’s regular office hours will be Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and any other time by appointment. Mondays will be his regular day off.

We will not be having virtual coffee hour on zoom after the service at this time.
We will post the recorded service on our Facebook page and it will be archived on our YouTube channel, so if you are unable to attend during the service time you can always watch at a time that is convenient to you.
Blessings from your St. Alban’s Family
We hope you all had a happy and safe New Year. Father Michael will not be with us this Sunday 01-03-2021, so we will be having morning prayer 01-03-2021 at 9:30am EST. Our streamer box is temporarily not working properly so we doing our best to make things work for the service Sunday but if there are any issues with the feed that will be why. Please bear with us while we get this problem fixed for future services.
Note: The Epiphany date in the newsletter is wrong. Should be January 6 not the 8th.
Peace and Blessings,
St. Alban’s Episcopal Church
