November 2016

Dear Parishioners: There are so many things going on this November I don’t know where to start. We begin with All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day and their celebrations. We have the changing of the time (before you go to bed, please) on Sunday morning about 2 am. We have the Bishop’s Visitation to St. …

October 2016

Dear Parishioners:

I would like to thank Charles Patton for his organizational skills and for bringing Fr. Jerry and Stacy back to St. Alban’s. It was indeed a gift to have them and for everything they shared with us. Thank you for your generosity towards their ministry. As you well know, this can be continued …

September 2016

Dear Parishioners:

Once again I would like to thank you for your love, prayers and support you have given me during and after the three surgeries I have had this past year. It hardly seems it but, yes September 16th was the first surgery. If you were not at church on my first Sunday back, …

May 2016

Dear Parishioners:

I thank God for the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I also thank him for the saving grace and mercy that lead to salvation. That was my thought as I sat in the Appellate Court of Texas. The detail, the building argument upon argument, the precedent upon precedent; the iotas …

Alleluia! Christ is Risen. The Lord is Risen Indeed. Alleluia!

I am so grateful for all those who participated, in one or another service, during Holy Week and the great Celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I just have to express my and St. Alban’s gratitude.

December 2015

Dear Parishioners:

I guess because of my surgery and recovery, time has quickly been speeding along. December is here and I hardly realize it. It is difficult to comprehend all the preparation for the celebration of the Christ Child that must be completed soon. It is a blessing indeed that we are given this time …

November 2015

When November shows its face on the calendar, I immediately start thinking of all the things that need to be done in the next few months. Not only do we have the Feast Days of All Saints’ Day and All Soul’s Day but the Holiday Tea, Diocesan Convention, Thanksgiving ending with the Feast of Christ …

September 2015

Dear Parishioners:

As I write this, I have been preparing for a necessary surgery. I know the grapevine express has been active as to what this surgery is for. I have four places that are restricting blood flow to my lower extremities. This will be corrected by having 4 bypasses of the restricted areas. After …

August 2015

Dear Parishioners,

While August is usually a time when preparation for mission and ministry is going on behind the scenes, this year there are some superb opportunities for us to participate in those preparations. I would first like all members of St. Alban’s, families, friends and neighbors to join us where we should always start—the …

July 2015

Dear Parishioners:

July is one of my favorite months—that is after December. It is a month when we celebrate the birth of our country and remember the principle of freedom on which this country was founded. There are few countries in the world that gives its people a Bill of Rights as well as a …
