But 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 world, and everyone is welcome.
Fr. John Riccardo offers a pastor’s perspective and delight at the impact of Alpha on the DNA of his parish. Alpha strengthened the parish, raised up leaders, and started the process of growing missionary disciples.
Bishop Michael Byrnes
Alpha equips both clergy and laity to effectively proclaim Jesus. Focusing on the kerygma–the initial proclamation of the Good News–Alpha introduces folks to an encounter with Jesus.
Alpha is offered by thousands of parishes around the world, endorsed by Catholic Bishops and Cardinals, and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
