What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

What are Holy Family Parishioners Saying About Alpha?

“My family and I are going through significant changes in our home. We recently moved from out of state. Alpha provided a lot of peace and comfort during this stressful time.”

“I feel a great sense of peace at Alpha. My goal is to make life Alpha, so I can carry this peace everywhere I go.”

“I felt a spiritual surge, like a hot, enduring – like lightning filling my heart and I was almost breathless. I was asking God to let the Holy Spirit fill me at the time and it was overwhelming.”

“I felt a greater invitation to Jesus and participation in my faith. While I trusted in Jesus’ ‘table’, I always felt unworthy. At the retreat, I felt invited and welcomed to the table.”

“The power of being prayed over really helped me find peace when dealing with a crisis.”

“Alpha has given me a new perspective of my faith and motivated me to start trying to develop more of a relationship with Jesus.”

“As a person who had no religious experience, I feel a change in my life.”

“This is something new, something ‘fresh’ that we as Catholics need. It’s a reminder of what we already know, but from another perspective.”

“The entire program awakened belief and made faith important again.”

“My experience was very profound during Alpha. I feel a strong sense of belonging and fellowship with the group.”

“Brought Christ’s love to my heart – realize more the power of living in His love and wisdom.”
