Service to the World

Our members and friends are active in helping the people of Salisbury and beyond.

 

A small yet dedicated group gathers in the church kitchen every first Wednesday to prepare a meal, then takes it to Joseph House and serves 75-100+ people a nutritious and filling lunch.

We also collect food and other staples on a regular basis, and serve Advent and Lenten soup lunches to collect funds to send the sisters.

  Wicomico High School
 St. Alban's participates in a Faith/School partnership with Wicomico High School through Salisbury's Promise. Salisbury’s Promise embodies Five Promises to help youth become productive citizens: Caring Adults, Healthy Start and Future, Safe Places, Marketable Skills and Opportunities to Serve.

Collections of school supplies and backpacks, donations to help students with food, and coordination with the environmental studies program are ways in which we are helping each other and establishing relationships.

 

  The congregation is invited to contribute to Episcopal Relief & Development, an organization that provides funding for relief and development world wide.  ERD has provided significant support in the Caribbean and in the southern US following the hurricanes of 2017, and in the West following the wildfires that have ravaged many areas.  Please go to their website to donate online.
 

Several parishioners volunteer with Habitat, an organization that builds and renovates houses to provide affordable housing for families in Salisbury. The latest build was dedicated on October 21, 2017.

The playground that was built by the community through the efforts of the Layton family requires routine maintenance. Volunteers from St. Alban's join that effort two to three times a year.
