From June 24 - August 26, 2018, Alpha participants will begin meeting on Sundays at Saint Kateri Parish at St. Margaret Mary Church from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM in the dining room. These meeting dates include a day long Alpha Retreat which will be on Sunday August 5th from 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM at St. Margaret Mary Church in the dining room.
Saint Kateri Alpha participants are in need of Hospitality Volunteers who are willing and able to provide either a meal (in whole or in part) and/or set up, and/or clean up at one of their eleven weekly meetings. All meals are served buffet style and do not need to be elaborate.
Alpha All Day Retreat Sunday August 5th: We are in need of three meals on this day: A Continental Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
If you do not have the time to prepare a meal but would still like to help with Alpha Hospitality, please consider making a monetary donation. All proceeds will be put toward the cost of purchasing a meal from a local pizzeria or restaurant for Alpha members. For more information about this option, please contact Corynn Shaw at: 585-544-8889 Ext 3403 or email at: [email protected]
What is Alpha?
Alpha is provided to anyone who wants to come at no cost. It is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith and it typically runs over eleven weeks.
Each session looks at a different question that people can have about faith and is designed to create conversation. It’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
There are three components to Alpha:
1. Food: Sharing a meal together before each meeting
2. Listening to a Talk: Presented by a different Alpha video each week.
3. Discussion: The chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic and simply discuss it in a small group. There is no obligation to say anything and there is nothing you can’t say.
