This Week at St. Alban's

Monday, February 11, 2019

Dear all,


Yesterday in church we gave thanks for and blessed Rev. Sara, as she prepares to head to Gresham, Oregon (just outside Portland) to serve as rector at St. Luke the Physician parish. We were blessed to have Rev. Anna Rossi as our deacon, and a fullness of joy (and delicious food) at coffee hour. 
Here are a couple of photos. 

  

Wherever you are heading today, may God be with you on the journey.

In love and gratitude,
Rev. Julie
