Alpha (click for official web site)
Alpha consists of a series of talks addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith. The course is general to all Christian denominations and therefore does not take a specifically Catholic position. It is nonetheless an outstanding resource.
Carole Parker is the Administrator for Alpha. She can be reached at 422-8306 to sign up for the next session. It shall be put on in mid-September 2007.
There is a light meal together at the beginning of each session which gives people a chance to get to know each other.
After each talk we divide into small groups to discuss the topic of the evening, ask questions and express opinions.
Coffee & Small groups
Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
