Join the Adventure!
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each session 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 -- you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk / video, and good conversation.
We are excited that Alpha is coming to Queen of Apostles + Saint Anthony on the Lake churches. Alpha consists of 11 sessions and a day away. We begin in September and ens in December. Tuesday evening sessions take place at Queen of Apostles from 6:30-8:30 pm and Thursday morning sessions take place at Saint Anthony on the Lake from 9:30-11:30 am. Members of both parishes are welcome at either session and the weekly sessions will begin during the week of September 19th.
Alpha is available to everyone – seniors in high school, senior citizens, Catholics, Christians, people of faith, and people of no faith – and it is free! If you've ever found yourself "going through the motions" of faith, or wishing to "go deeper" this opportunity may be just what God has in mind for you! Maybe there is someone in your life who would enjoy an informal and nonjudgmental space to explore questions of faith. To get the details or to register click here. With the overwhelming popularity of the first experience, we encourage you to register early. Join us as we continue to invite the Holy Spirit into our communities and into our lives!
Alpha Launched in Spring 2017!
Thank you to our Leadership Team, Hosts, and Helpers for getting our first-ever session of the Alpha course off the ground. Pictured here are most of the Tuesday night crew – Sarah (St. Dominic), John, Gayle, Stephanie, Dori (SAL), Fr. Chuck, Jose, Anna Marie, Liz, Debbie, Laura, Katie (SAL), and Mic. Missing is Lori. We and 45+ guests celebrated Mardis Gras – including pączkis! We also watched and discussed the video, “Is There More to Life Than This?” Friday midday sessions are also underway at SAL with about the same number of leaders and guests. Please pray that the Holy Spirit may strengthen us and our parishes through Alpha this year.
