Alpha Series

Got questions about life? Try Alpha!  Visit

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith over food, an engaging video, and a small group discussion. Alpha is open to all—parishioners and guests! Millions of people have tried Alpha in 169 countries, and the course has been translated into 112 different languages.

We are excited to offer another Alpha session (in the Catholic context) this fall.  The series begins September 26 and continues Wednesdays, 6:15-7:30 p.m., through December 19 in Faith Community Center Room 10.  No sessions October 17 or 31, November 21.

We ask for your prayerful support for the Alpha leaders and participants:

Heavenly Father,
We entrust the Alpha course to you.
We pray for those who are searching for meaning in their lives and want to know who You are.
May they encounter You through the radical hospitality, the video presentations, and the small group discussions of Alpha.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Alpha sessions build on topics from previous session(s), but you are welcome to join any sessions you would like.
