Alpha is a weekly series of shared meals, short presentations, and free-flowing group discussion where guests are invited to share, from 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 Wednesday evenings begining Sept 4, 2019 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Alpha is free. Of course, we will happily accept donations to help defray the cost of the meals that are provided.
We ask only that guests register in advance; a printable form is provided below. We ask, also, that the fill-out form be in the parish office by Sept. 3.
Sessions held in the Corpus Christi community center.
