The Alpha course might be just what you're looking for.
Alpha is a series of shared meals, short presentations, and free-flowing group discussion where guests (perhaps that's you!) are offered the opportunity to share their own experiences, insights and questions about the deeper meaning of life and the presence of the divine in their lives.
There is no cost or obligation to participate in Alpha. The sessions are open to all adults: Catholic, Protestant, non-Christian, agnostic, or atheist.
Alpha is offered on Tuesday evenings beginning September 26, 2017. The course consists of 11 weeks in length concluding December 5. We start with a simple meal at 6:15 p.m. and conclude by 8:30 p.m. There is a morning and afternoon session on Saturday, November 11, 2017.
Alpha is free. You will be our guest. Of course, we will happily accept donations to help defray the cost of the meals that are provided.
The week-by-week schedule for this offering is below.
We ask only that guests register in advance; a form is provided below. You may register with the online form or, if you prefer, print the PDF registration form and bring it to the parish office no later than Friday, September 22.
Church leaders across the world, including Cardinals, Archbishops, and Bishops with particularly important roles in evangelization and Christian unity, have offered praise for the fruits that come from offering Alpha in Catholic parishes.
