Who Is Alpha For?
ALPHA is designed to help everyone on their faith journey. For those who have questions, ALPHA can provide answers. For those further along on their spiritual path, ALPHA is a perfect way to re-introduce yourself to your faith, to your Church, and most importantly to Jesus Christ. It is a great way to meet new people and connect with others in the parish. You will be amazed by how fast the ten weeks will fly by, you’ll also be amazed by how you’ll feel as you move into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.

The ALPHA program is a series of interactive sessions that explores the Christian faith. Each session begins with a meal, a time to meet new people and share in each other’s life. After the meal, a short video is shown. The videos are entertaining, as well as, enlightening, as they are based on teachings of the Church and the Bible. Afterwards, there is a small group discussion, where no question is too simple and no answer pre-packaged. The sessions are offered at different times, last exactly two hours each and presented over ten weeks.
