Home Masses

The parish's Home Mass Program is a feature of our special Jubilee Year celebrations — and we see it, in part, as in lieu of a Parish Visitation. The concept is that when a parish family volunteers to host a Home Mass, the parish will invite nearby parishioners who would have been visited by one of our clergy on one day of the Parish Visitation. If they have the room, the host family is free to invite others. The visiting priest and those present then have an opportunity to interact informally about the life of the parish.

More detail was given in a letter sent to all parish families. A Sign-Up Genius program enables families willing to host a Home Mass to sign-up for one of the available dates.

Alpha Sessions Meet on Thursdays

Alpha is a series of sessions designed to develop in the participants a deeper relationship with Jesus and openness to the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Approximately 60 individuals are participating in Alpha sessions each Thursday.

Each session begins with a meal which is followed by a video talk by Nicky Gumbel, and then small group discussions. The talks are designed to encourage conversation in a friendly, open and informal environment. The first three talks are made available here for those who missed them.

Prayer works! We ask that the entire parish pray both for the Alpha team and for the participants. The Alpha program is reliant on the Holy Spirit, and not on the expertise of the team or the participants. So please pray that the Holy Spirit blesses the endeavors of the parish in presenting the Alpha program.
