Ready to Grow Your Faith This Fall?

Jul 25, 2017

Two new programs will be available to parishioners and friends starting this September:

Alpha is a chance to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment, with a meal and good conversation. Alpha is no-cost, no-pressure and no-commitment. More than 4,000 Alpha courses have been run around the world, including within our own parish cluster, both at St. Raphael and as a partnership between Holy Spirit and St. Joseph. Alpha was originally designed for those who had not had much exposure to Christianity, but many faithful Catholics also attest that it is a powerful tool for anyone who desires to learn more about the faith and is open to a deeper relationship with Jesus. Alpha is open to anyone of any faith background or no faith background at all, so please bring a friend who might benefit from the experience!

 There will be two new opportunities this Fall to attend Alpha within our Parish Cluster!

Every Tuesday from September 5th to November 14th

6:30 PM to 9:00 PM—Dinner will be provided.

Catholicism—Journey around the world and deep into the Faith. 

“The beauty, goodness and truth of the Catholic Faith are illustrated in a rich, multimedia experience in the DVD series CATHOLICISM. Journey with acclaimed author, speaker and theologian Bishop Robert Barron to more than 50 locations throughout 15 countries. Be illuminated by the spiritual and artistic treasures of this global culture that claims more than one billion of the earth’s people. From the sacred lands of Israel to the beating heart of Uganda... from the glorious shrines of Italy, France, and Spain, to the streets of Mexico, Kolkata, and New York City, the fullness of CATHOLICISM is revealed. Journey deep into the Faith as you watch each episode.”

 We will be offering this series, along with informal discussion and dessert as a potential next step for those who attended Alpha last winter, but the series is certainly open to anyone who seeks to deepen their understanding and love of the Catholic Church. Please join us and consider bringing a friend!
