WHAT IS ALPHA?
Alpha is a series of interactive gatherings exploring big life questions and the basics of the Christian faith. Every Alpha gathering includes a meal, a talk and small group discussion, where no question is too simple and no answer is prepackaged.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
Alpha is a place to talk about faith, to give voice to your opinions, beliefs, doubts, and convictions. It's a place to be accepted, yet challenged. This isn't a theology class or religious ed: it's a place to hear the Gospel message and respond. So, whether you've been taking theology classes for the past 11 years, or you're new to the Christian faith, this is for you!
Alpha is a pre-requisite for Confirmation. All 9-11th grade students will go through Alpha this fall.
Sundays every fall and spring, 6:45-8:00pm!
What Comes After Alpha?
small groups. big impact.
These small groups will connect you with peers, our parish, and Christ. Starting in Spring 2020, students who have completed Alpha and desire to be in a small group, will be placed with 4 peers and one adult mentor. In order to grow closer to God, we need to know how He has revealed Himself in Scripture, in the witness and teachings of the saints, and in our lives today. Therefore, groups will meet to discuss their chosen topic (hot topics, Bible study, Mass, etc.), and talk about life and faith. Groups will be separated by grade and gender.
