Over 1,000 parishioners at St. Basil the Great

Alpha will be offered the Fall of 2016, running Tuesday nights, from 6:45-9pm,  from
Sept. 13 – Nov. 15th
 in the Parish Center.
 

 

 
 

What is Alpha?

– A shared meal
– A short talk or video about the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the Faith, the Bible, or healing — and how they relate to us
– Small group discussion that unpacks who God really is, and who we are in light of that
– A safe place where you can ask life’s deepest questions
 
Alpha is NOT:
– A class of lessons
– Lectures on theological teaching
– An exhaustive treatment of everything Catholicism has to offer

Who is Alpha for?

– Young or old
– Converts or cradle Catholics
Any person of any faith who wants to live life to the full (John 10:10)
– The cold, lukewarm, or on-fire
– People who want to get more connected to a wonderful parish community
– Single, married, and adults with families (FREE babysitting will be offered)
 

What will Alpha do?

– Help you rediscover that Beauty that is ever ancient, ever new
– Help you practice the Presence of God in your daily life
– Remind you of your worth
– Deepen your spirituality
– Form lasting friendships
– Energize your faith

But I already go to church…

Great!  God is very pleased. However, there are some people who attend church every week to worship, but have lost the personal connection with the God whom they are worshipping.   Hundreds of our parishioners at St. Basil now get more out of Mass, Catholic devotions, and prayer than they used to before they attended Alpha.   One thing is for sure with our Faith — we can never exhaust its riches.  
We can always go deeper.
