What is Alpha? It’s a wonderful way to explore life and the Christian faith in an informal, open environment. We all have big questions about life and meaning – why not spend some time searching for answers as we “stay at home” ? We invite you to join the Alpha course online to explore those big questions around life, meaning, and faith in an open and judgment free environment. No pressure. No follow-up. No charge. Join us to ask questions, explore answers, and make new friends.
What Happens During an Alpha Course?
Alpha Online takes place across eleven sessions. Each session includes a short film and a discussion where you can share your thoughts with an online small group.Each talk is designed to create conversation in a friendly, honest, judgment-free and informal environment. Frequently asked questions are: Is there a God? Why am I here? What is my purpose? If at any point you decide Alpha isn't for you, that's not a problem. There's no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
New 0nline Alpha starting soon. Check back for details!
We believe Alpha is a key component of what the future holds for us as a renewed Divine Mercy parish. It’s a wonderful way to renew your faith. It’s an opportunity to get to know people in our faith community, whether they are from St. Philip or Sacred Heart. Come and check it out! No matter who you are or what you believe, everyone is welcome...Catholic or not…practicing or not…or simply curious…Join us! You’ll love the food, the videos and the conversation.
Everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Take a chance!
Watch for upcoming dates for new sessions of Alpha. Come and see what it's all about. Questions? Contact Sue Lehocky firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Participants Are Saying About Alpha
"If you yearn for greater purpose and meaning in your every day, consider trying Alpha. After the first gathering, you will sense the potential impact on your life. For me, it was an unexpected and profound gift!"
"I so enjoyed our small group sessions. It was a place to share, support, and strengthen the bonds of our Catholic Community."
"I had no idea what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. It helped me review my faith on another level and talk with others about it. I also was very surprised about the number of fellow Parishioners that attended."
"Alpha was the first experience that helped me to find a path to forgiveness in my heart. It would not have happened without the inspiring people I shared the Alpha journey with or the amazing overnight retreat. It was truly a life-changing experience."
"When I signed up for Alpha, I did not appreciate what I would experience. The program was a great way to get to know other parishioners. We became a closer group as the weeks went by. The videos were very powerful means to remind us of how wonderful it is to be a Catholic."
