What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith. It is a parish tool for evangelization based on welcome and hospitality, sharing and prayer. Each session includes a meal, a talk and small group discussion, where no question is too simple and no answer is pre-packaged.
Over 160 parishioners have already participated in the Alpha experience at Good Shepherd.
Next weekend, you will be invited to consider taking the next Alpha course that begins Tuesday, September 12th.
