New Alpha Series
Began Wednesday, February 21st

St. Vincent's second Alpha program began at 6:00 P.M. on Wednesday, February 21st, and will continue weekly for 11 weeks. Additional participants are welcome.

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.

Everyone is welcome. The talks are designed to encourage conversation in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds, and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. There's no charge to do Alpha.

One participant"s comment: "Going to Church is more exciting — it feels like family." Participants in our first Alpha program are encouraged to invite others — and, if they are uncertain, offer to accompany them. Previous Alpha participants are also invited to take a role in the Alpha leadership team for this Alpha series — sign-up below as a leader.

Sign-up for Alpha Now

While there is no "absentee list" developed for each Alpha session, sign-ups are requested so that there is adequate food for the meal.
