Our Alpha courses have been incredibly fruitful and faith building. Many people have talked about how they made new friends, got to talk about things freely and not be judged, how they came to know Jesus in a deeper way and experience the power and work of the Holy Spirit.
Alpha is the first letter of the Greek Alphabet-it is meant to be only the beginning. A beginning means something follows - so we are meant to continue this journey that mayhave started with Alpha - or may have started before Alpha. Either way, we are meant to walk with each other and help one another get to heaven.
Here are some ideas:
Say hello to the people around you at Mass
Help with Alpha in March 2016!
Nothing is more important than giving an unborn child a chance at life. As Catholics, we believe that life begins at conception and only ends at it's natural death. While we also believe in doing everything possible to maintain life of dignity for all throughout their life, the ability to take life's first breath underscores everything else. Everything.
This is why we are committed to praying and taking action so that every abortion clinic is closed. So far, all "free standing" clinics in Lansing have closed and you are invited to pray for and pray in front of the "Planned Parenthood" clinic so that it too, closes.
This is one of many ways we can support life. Recently sainted Mother Teresa said "I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion because it is a war against the child"
