Alpha – Sharing life, faith, hope and Jesus

Alpha is a 12- week course (one-evening per week) that creates a space, online or in person, where people are excited to join with their friends for a conversation about life, faith, and Jesus.  It is a relaxing way to have a first or new “encounter” with Jesus.

OLPH has provided Alpha sessions to parishioners and others as part of program ministries since 2013.  Close to 1,000 attendees (youth and adults) have participated in Alpha programming within the parish.

The Alpha talks are designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation.  Discussion time is an opportunity for people to listen and respond to talk, hear from others, and contribute questions and comments..

“What I love about Alpha is that it’s not really a formula, it’s just community, around a table, responding to a video message with a focus on the gospel of Jesus, and an openness to the Holy Spirit!”  Attendee Comment, Alpha Questionnaire
