St. Alban’s Church, St. Pete Beach
Open, inclusive, inviting, inspiring
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 of different ages from different backgrounds and during ‘the season’, different countries. We are straight, we are gay. Some are single, some married, some partnered, some – single again. We are women, men and children. Some of us live alone, some with others. People who come to St. Alban’s have all kinds of different reasons for choosing to make this a spiritual home – and this is a blessing.
So, no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
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.
The Rev. Gigi Conner is the Priest in Charge.
