Earlier this year, many parishioners realized how much in disrepair the front entrance to our church had become. Most of the wood work had been patched and covered up many times over during the 60 year plus history of our beautiful structure. When the vestry approved the funds to have the repairs performed, bids were taken and construction was started. Once the doors were removed, it was discovered how much dry rot had occurred behind the brass kick plates and was determined that the only way to reuse these historic doors was to patch them with a synthetic filler. Unfortunately, the product would not accept stain and exterior paint was the only viable top finish. In following theological symbolism of the Highland Street entrance, red was chosen to represent the Passion of Christ and the color of the Holy Spirit as reflective at the day of Pentecost. This new entrance now gives St. Alban’s an unique identity as the “Red Door Church of Monroe” and hopefully will appeal to many people looking for a church home to expand their journey of faith.
On April 24, 2016, St. Alban’s hosted a choral concert and Evensong under the direction of St. Alban’s choirmaster, Kristen Donaldson. The choral event performers were the George Walton Academy Middle School Meistersingers and High School Chorale, with the St. Alban’s choir performing the Evensong. Below are pictures from this event.
Kristen Donaldson joined us as our new choirmaster on April 1, 2016. We are very blessed to have her.
Kristen is the Choir Director and AP Music Theory teacher at George Walton Academy in Monroe, GA.
