History

A History of Discovering Joy

Saint Alban’s Episcopal Church began its life as a mission church on June 21st, 1914 under a tent set up on the grounds at Fort Williams. During its first twenty years, Saint Alban’s Mission was a summer chapel serving army officers stationed at Fort Williams and summer residents of Cape Elizabeth. After occupying a small building on the South Portland-Cape Elizabeth line for several years, the congregation celebrated its first Eucharist in a new church building at its present location at 885 Shore Road in 1956. In the years that followed the church reached out to the community through grilled chicken dinners, a children’s clothing trading post, and Boy Scouts.

June 2001 marked the beginning of a new phase in Saint Alban’s life as a new building brought together the church and the parish hall, where most of the congregation’s activities take place. Since then, the congregation has experienced considerable growth, especially in young families. Today, the tradition of opening the church doors wide to the community continues with a variety of programs and activities for adults, children and youth. Our Priest, The Rev. Timothy A. Boggs, our Assistant Rector, The Rev. Kelly Moughty, our deacon, The Ven. Audrey S. Delafield, and many parishioners working within the congregation have imbued the church with a sense of comfort and family where people can come as they are and find a place to ask or not ask questions about faith, family, community, and life.
