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

Family members of those affected by mental illness are cordially invited to attend this National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Support Group on Wednesday, February 6. Meetings are held in the Library on the first Wednesday of every month from 2:00 to 3:30. Experienced group leaders guide discussions about

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.
