What is Alpha?
The Alpha Course is a practical introduction to the Christian faith, where guests have an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. Each session, people enjoy a simple meal, laughter and learning about the person and teachings of Jesus in a fun and non-threatening atmosphere where no question about life or God is too simple or too hostile.
Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for anyone: all backgrounds, religions and viewpoints. Everyone is welcome. The Alpha course has proved to be an effective tool for awakening faith in people who are on the fringe of parish life, faithful Catholics and those outside the faith.
I would like for Alpha to be the way in which we as parishioners evangelize by inviting others to it. I'm hoping lots of parishioners experience it and then share it.
When and where will Alpha start?
Alpha is on Thursdays at 6:30pm starting September 10th. There will be an in-person course at St. Thomas More as well as an online option hosted by me.
How long is Alpha?
Alpha usually meets once per week for 10 -12 weeks. There is absolutely no judgement if someone starts and decides not to continue.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge to attend the Alpha course.
