St. Alban’s Church, St. Pete Beach
open, inclusive, welcoming
St. Alban’s is a faith community where diversity is honored and celebrated; where acceptance, encouragement and love are given so that all people may explore their journey in faith; and where, through our many gifts, we cultivate a desire to give in thankfulness for all God has given us.
We are a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida and are part of the world wide Anglican Communion. The Rt Rev. Dabney T. Smith is the Bishop of the Diocese. The Rt Rev. Barry Howe and J. Michael Garrison are Assisting Bishops.
As responsible stewards of the church and its property, we are exploring ways in which we can become a ‘green’ church. To that end, we are making it easier to pay pledges or make donations by using the donate button on this website.
The Rev. Gigi Conner is the Priest in Charge.

ALTAR CLOTH PROJECT
Time to get out your tie-dyed shirts (or find one at the Attic Shoppe),love beads, and other peacenik items to prepare for International Peace Day on September 21. PLUS we are making a special altar cloth for this day. The first Sunday of September will be the last chance to ‘color’ yourself with fabric crayons – using a special pattern. These figures will be ironed on to a piece of material and we will all appear as a hand-holding congregation on the front of the altar. Those who live far a way during the summer will be sent a pattern. We go from this pattern-
you pick out your ‘size’- color with fabric crayons and then you will be ironed on to the cloth
which will end up looking something like this.
