Alpha is a practical tool inspiring Catholic renewal by answering the call to the New Evangelization. Alpha is proven to awaken faith in lapsed Catholics, those on the fringe of parish life and those outside the Church. It gives faithful Catholics a path and a language to fulfill their baptismal call to evangelize.
Alpha is running in parishes all over the world, in every faith tradition, in workplace settings, prisons, homes, any place where people gather. Alpha has been customized to speak to certain groups of people like youth and college students. In the different contexts which Alpha is offered the focus remains evangelistic in nature and centered on the kerygma.
Alpha creates an environment and opportunity for an encounter with Jesus, offering as Pope Francis likes to say, the chance for "Jesus to find them." Alpha is an invitation to "drop your nets" and become an intentional follower of Jesus. We are here to assist Catholics discern and implement Alpha within a Catholic context.
