As part of the Synod Action Plan, our parish is running the Alpha program, beginning Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 7:00 PM in St. Patrick Hall at Saint Michael Church.

Alpha is a series of 11 interactive sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to spark conversation. There is no pressure, no follow up, no charge, and best of all, no homework! All are welcome—practicing Catholics as well as those who don’t go to Church or believe in God.

Alpha is run all around the globe in 169 countries. Over 28 million people have experienced it. We begin each session with a meal in order to help build community. After the meal, a short video is played which explores big issues around faith. These issues are designed to engage and inspire conversation. The first video asks, “Is There More to Life Than This?” The video is followed by small group discussion, providing the opportunity to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and build trust and friendship. The evening will conclude at 9:00 PM.
