Got Questions? Try Alpha!
Alpha is a series of sessions that helps participants explore the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question around faith from a Catholic context and is designed to create conversation. A typical gathering will include gathering for a simple meal, viewing an engaging and thought-provoking video, and small group discussion time to reflect and process how the day’s question pertains to your spiritual journey.
What type of commitment must I make?
We invite everyone to participate in any or all of our first three sessions on October 7th, October 14th, and October 21st. If you find that Alpha is not for you, you are not obligated to participate in the future. But we are certain you will find something good in our session and will WANT to come back the next week, the week after that, etc.
How much does it cost to participate?
This program is free of charge! Participants will be offered the opportunity to make free will donations and/or bring food to share to help offset costs, but there is no requirement nor expectation that participants make any financial contribution.

Is this a "Catholic" program?
