Welcome to Alpha for Catholics

Alpha is a practical tool inspiring Catholic renewal by answering the call to the New Evangelization, the call of Christ and His Church to "go and make disciples of all nations".  Alpha is proven to awaken faith in lapsed Catholics, those on the fringe of parish life and those outside the faith.  It gives faithful Catholics a path and a language to fulfill their baptismal call to evangelize.  It is a proven method of introducing people to a living relationship, a personal encounter with Jesus Christ.  Alpha for Catholics uses the original Alpha talks, given by Rev. Nicky Gumbel, an Anglican priest, in a Catholic setting.  We encourage the opportunity for guests to celebrate Reconciliation and Eucharist during the retreat.  Small group discussion after dinner and the talk is the best opportunity for discussion from a Catholic perspective.  Alpha for Catholics offers two optional talks given by Fr. James Mallon that can be substitued for the original talks; "How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit," and "What about the Church."  Alpha helps people in that first important step on their continuing journey of Catholic conversion.  Alpha is an invitation to "drop your nets" and become an intentional follower of Jesus.
