What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Typically run over eleven weeks, each session looks at a different question around faith, and the talks are designed to create conversation in small groups afterwards. It’s totally free, it’s run all over the globe, and everyone’s welcome. Find out more about Alpha
What happens at Alpha?
Every Alpha is different, but generally they have three things in common: food, a talk and conversation.
Food – Most sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect and get to know everyone there.
Talk – The talks explore the basics of the Christian faith and are designed to inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as an episode. Watch a talk
Conversation – There is a discussion after the talk where you can share your thoughts and ideas on the session’s topic. You can say anything
Why is this being offered?
St. Catharine Parish realizes the importance of providing opportunities for adults to grow in the faith. Trends show that children whose parents attend weekly mass and are involved in some faith building program are more likely to continue to practice the faith once they reach adulthood. Since the sacramental years are such formative years for children, our desire is to give every opportunity we can for parents to also grow in their relationship with Christ.
