ALPHA Catholic program at
St. Monica's Parish
September 22 - December 8, 2014
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.
This Fall session of Alpha was a success with over 50-60 people coming to the evening sessions. The evening were filled with great food and great discussions.
(note: pictures of the Alpha evenings coming soon)
