Photo courtesy of the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre.On March 25, 1973, Archbishop Wright donated seventeen gorgeous stained-glass windows to St. Alban's, each one in honour of a prominent member of the community who had died. Two windows that represented the two cardinal responsibilities of the Christian Church were donated in memory of Alex Nepitt Sr., fourteen windows showed the events of man's salvation from creation to his decline, and from reconciliation to redemption. The final window represented the influence that St. Alban's Church has over the community.

In November of 1973, St. Alban's the Martyr celebrated its 50th anniversary. In preparation for the celebration, the porch of the church was remodeled and paneled to serve as a memorial to the pioneers of the parish.

Today, St. Alban's continues to be a pillar of faith and devotion to the many Anglican members of the Capreol community.
