Alpha In a Catholic Context
An Invitation to 'Come & See'
Have you heard about Alpha and wondered if it might be useful in your Parish?
Alpha is an easy-to-use tool for evangelisation which has been used by thousands of Catholic Parishes around the world.
Alpha presents the core of the Christian faith, the Kerygma, in a welcoming and friendly way which appeals to millennials, and seeks to address their questions and concerns.
Attend an Alpha session with a free dinner and talk. This will help you understand what Alpha is and to evaluate it's possible effectiveness for your Parish. Sessions are available at various Parishes:
Alpha Team Training Workshops
The Training Workshop will look at where Alpha fits in the faith formation process in a Parish and how Alpha can become an integral part of a Parish pastoral plan to evangelise and grow missionary disciples. There will be various workshops on forming a Parish team, running an Alpha evening, facilitating an Alpha small group and the Alpha 'Retreat Day Away'.
We are so excited by what has been happening through Alpha in Catholic Parishes this year! We have a number of "Masterclass" Events planned over the next couple of months. These events are an opportunity for Parish Alpha Teams to meet each other and to discuss how their Alphas are going, exchange ideas, share struggles and to network. There will be opportunities to ask questions about all aspects of your Alpha.
Masterclass events will be run in NSW in Sydney, Wollongong, Broken Bay and Parramatta Dioceses. And in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Hobart Dioceses, in late October and November. Please click below over the coming weeks for as we continue to add more masterclasses across Australia.
If you have any questions or would like to arrange a Masterclass in your area, please contact Lorraine on 0402 217 123.
