Alpha for Catholics

Alpha is about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. It is a program of gentle evangelization. Over the course of ten weeks, Alpha provides a practical introduction to The Christian faith, offering guests an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed and friendly setting. Alpha provides an opportunity for people to encounter the love of God in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through The Holy Spirit. Alpha is biblically based and focuses on The Kerygma – the essential Good News of Jesus Christ, as preached by the early Church.

Each evening involves supper together, a talk on a different aspect of the Christian faith and small group sharing. Alpha embodies the values of hospitality, welcome and inclusion that are so important to Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. It also focuses on the direction and vision of The Church in the sharing and witnessing to the joy of The Gospel and growth in discipleship.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha for Catholics is designed for:

  • Catholics who desire a deeper, more personal relationship with The Lord
  • As a point of re-entry for those Catholics who have been away from The Church for a while
  • Those who have not been baptized and for those who have not yet heard the Good News
