St. Alban's Episcopal Church is a caring and creative, resilient and growing, Christ-centered family in Tucson, Arizona. We welcome all who share the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are mission-oriented, serving a host of organizations and groups that are in need of support.
St. Alban's is a member of the Episcopal Church of America, one of 63 congregations in the Diocese of Arizona. Episcopal churches are part of the Anglican Communion that spans the globe. Our church is home to nearly 300 families who come from a wide cross-section of the Tucson community, and home to a wonderful NAEYC-accredited preschool.
If you are interested in joining our congregation we'd like to invite you to one of our weekly services. And, of course, feel free to reach out to one of our clergy for any information you would like before visiting.
Many blessings to you, Fr. Bruce White

On Friday September 30th, St. Alban's will host our annual Oktoberfest celebration. Doors open at 5:30pm with a catered German dinner served at 6:00pm. There will be lemonade, ice tea and water but if you want something a tad stronger, it is BYOB. For your enjoyment, there will be music by the Bouncing Czechs and dancing performed by the Bela Vrucina Dancers. We will also have 50/50 and door prize raffles. Tickets are $25 a person with kids free (special kids dinner). Please sign up in the Narthex or by email at email@example.com.

Reading with the Rector will begin a new series on Tuesday, September 13, at 1:00pm in Room 10. We will read two chapters of The Meaning of Jesus by Marcus Borg and N.T. Wright. The chapters are all short, but the discussion is expected to be lively. We should finish the book by November 1.
50th Anniversary Slide Show Now Online!

Induction Loop for Hearing Aid Users
Great news for worshippers who use hearing aids! St. Alban’s is installing an induction loop system like those found in many theaters, concert halls, and auditoriums. It will be tied into our existing sound system, so that everything spoken into a microphone in the church will be transmitted directly to your hearing aid, if equipped with a T-coil. Typically a T-coil is built into newer hearing aids, though users may need to have it activated at the place where they purchased their device. Older hearing aids may have a physical switch that activates the T-coil, or may lack the T-coil feature. For information about your own unit, please consult your audiologist or hearing aid provider.
