As host of “Man vs. Wild” Bear Grylls said, “Alpha is a way to explore what we hunger after – meaning and intimacy and relationship…in a very non-pressed, non-judgmental environment.” This is especially intended for those friends and family members we have been praying for: whether they have fallen away or have never been active. This is the warm and welcoming invitation.
“Alpha is for meeting Jesus.” That was said by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and key author of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
We have offered Alpha in the Catholic Context since 2015 with tremendous success! MOST of the attendees said the Alpha Course changed the direction of their spiritual lives! Alpha is an international success, bringing people together over great food to discuss their faith journey after watching some top-notch videos and hearing heart-touching stories of how people have encountered Jesus. It has deeply impacted our RCIA process at St. John and the faith of many, many dozens of folks here.
Our next Alpha will be held at the Grand River Brewery in downtown Jackson, Tuesdays nights, starting at 6:00. The first session is September 19. Join us for a terrific meal, soft drinks, table conversations and the dynamic Alpha Film Series. We have limited seating, so please register soon!
