Study Circles - Regular gatherings of people interested in an in-depth and systematic study of the Bahá'í Writings. The purpose of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of the Holy Word, begin to comprehend the meanings and then find ways to apply the Word to our lives through spiritual transformation and service to humanity.
Children's Classes - Children are the most precious resource a community has. Much like a young tree, children will grow and develop in whatever way they are trained and according to the influences they experience. Bahá'í children's classes are intended to nurture spiritually vibrant and healthy young people who will grow up without prejudice and with a positive, powerful sense that they are important to God and have a role to play in serving humanity.
The Teachings of Bahá'u'lláh form the basis of these classes and introduce the Bahá'í Teachings and those of other Messenger's of God to foster a fully united, just and peaceful world. Learn more »
Annual Sponsored Events
United Nations' International Women's Day - International Women's Day (8 March) is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women. It is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development. The St. Albert Bahá'í community is proud to sponsor the 15th Annual International Women’s Day ceremony. Learn more »
