We have launched a new ministry in our parish called Alpha! It’s an 11-week course that explores the Christian faith in an atmosphere of community and conversation. Ultimately, its goal is to give a compelling presentation of Jesus Christ and invite people into a relationship with Him – and into a relationship with our parish.
Other Catholic parishes have done Alpha with great success in bringing people to faith. As we repeat Alpha each year, our parishioners and people who have already attended it will invite others who are fallen away from Christ or who have no faith. It will give us the opportunity to meet them where they are, talk about Jesus with them, and show them the love of God.
Alpha is geared toward people who have never had an encounter with Jesus Christ. If that describes you, then I hope you sign up! If that describes someone you love, then I hope you will invite them. This may be the opportunity for them to engage some of life’s biggest questions in an environment of dialogue and community. Dinner will be provided each evening, and Alpha is completely free. And we have a great team of parishioners who will be hosting our guests and leading the table discussions!
While our first night was January 14th, we’d still love to see you! Please feel free to sign up at any point during the 11-week course. All are welcome.
