The congregation of Saint Alban’s Church was organized in 1S97, with the following officers: -Warden, Mr. R. W. Sheldon ; Treasurer, Mr. R. R. Elliott; Clerk, Mr. W. G. Elloitt.

In June of that year the organization was admitted unto union with the Diocese of Western Michigan, under the Jurisdiction of the Right Reverened G. D. Gillespie, D. D., Bishop.

Until January of the present year occasional services by visiting clergymen were held, when the Bishop appointed the Rev. H. P. Vicborn, priest-in-charge.

The organization as yet owns no property, the services being held in the unused Universalist building, by the courtesey of the board of trustees. An effort will be made in the near future to secure a permanent location.

All the necessary departments of church work are fully organized and in good working order. The following are a list of the officers and societies:

…The Young Ladies’ Society—Miss Ross, director and president; Miss Edla Park Vice-Pres. Miss Alice Ware, secretary-. Miss Cathie Pierce, treas. Mr. A. M. Gerdy, sexton.
