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

What is Lent?
Lent is a season in the Church where we take time to examine our lives in light of the great gift of salvation that Jesus Christ won for us on the cross. His resurrection from the dead means we have access to heaven. Lent provides us a time to look at the ways that we need God's grace to become ready for heaven-where there is no pain and no suffering.
Matthew Kelly and Dynamic Catholic are offering us an opportunity to have a really meaningful Lent. Don't just give up chocolate-give up bad attitudes and other things blocking us from having a full life. Go to Best Lent Ever and sign up!
Join us for the Stations of the Cross in the Church every Friday of Lent at 7pm.
What do the different parts of the Mass mean? How does music relate to the Mass? What is really going on in the Mass? You are invited to come and explore what the Catholic Mass means and how to more deeply enter into it.
A soup supper begins at 6pm and our video presentations with small and large group discussions begin at 7pm. Fr John joins us each week inviting any questions that you might have on the Liturgy.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the heart of Catholic worship, and you are welcome to invite a friend who isn't Catholic to come and learn -or come and learn more for your own prayer life!
