Alpha at St. Malachy!


ALPHA is an evangelization event run over 15 weeks that brings people together, asks the BIG questions in life and allows partici- pants to freely express and discuss their own questions about Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Our Faith in a relaxed and comfortable environ- ment.

Who is it for?

ALPHA is for everyone, but it really works best for people who have questions and concerns about the Faith and have (perhaps) fall- en away from the Church. One of the best ways to experience AL- PHA is to invite a friend to attend with you, such as a co-worker, a relative, or a neighbor, who may have stopped coming to Church, for any reason.

How does it work?

ALPHA begins with a meal. Participants get to know each other in a relaxed and non-threatening environment. After the dinner, a video is shown which has one BIG question in it and explanations of what the Church teaches. The first video (for example) is entitled, “Is there more to LIFE than this?” After the video a group discussion ensues. Everyone is free to comment and is encouraged to do so. No opinions are exempt, hosts of the table groups do not answer ques- tions, but rather encourage participants to explore their feelings and understandings. The ALPHA Team states its beliefs through the video. The Holy Spirit guides the process over the course of the ses- sions.

When does it occur?

The first ALPHA session is on Monday, January 9, 2017; and begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Currier Center, concluding about two hours later. Subsequent sessions are scheduled on every Monday night until April 3, 2017, when ALPHA concludes.

How can I participate, and is there a cost for this series of meetings?
Registration forms are available in the office (in the Currier Center) and in the Gathering Space after each mass. NO, there is no cost for participants…but we ask that you register so we can complete our planning in anticipation of your attendance. For more information call Gordon Peck 586-296-9878
