Youth Alpha - Fall 2020


High School teens (Grades 9-12) at OLM are asked to attend Youth Alpha as they think about their decision to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Run over 9 weeks, each session looks at a different question that teens can have about faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is a safe, non-judgmental, friendly, and welcoming space to explore life's big questions together. Join us for an engaging video talk and small group conversation.


*In-Person Youth Alpha will be held on Sundays starting September 27, 2020. Other Dates are October 4, 11, 18, 25, November 1, 8, 15, & 22. Sessions will be held in a Parish Life Center meeting room-Exact rooms TBD. *Please note that this is the preferred method of experiencing Alpha.

We will offer these times:

Sunday morning 8:30-9:30 AM session

Sunday evening 7:00-8:00 PM session

***All social distancing procedures will be in effect, including temperature check upon arrival, masks and 6 feet spacing. Teens will be divided into groups of 10. You may list a friend preference who you would like to be in small group with you. Bottled water and pre-packaged snack will be available at the in-person sessions. **Please note that if the situation warrants it, we are prepared to move the Youth Alpha online to a virtual experience.

In addition, we are gauging interest in an ONLINE virtual Youth Alpha. Please indicate If you would prefer this type of an experience.

An important part of the Alpha experience is the Day Away which will be held on Saturday,  November 7th in the PLC. An Information letter and permission form with all the details will be available at Alpha and on the Alpha webpage in October.

Parents, can you help with various duties at the Alpha sessions? We could use help with set-up, check-in/attendance/temperature checks, cleaning, etc. This is needed to help make the experience for our teens the best it can be, including as SAFE as it can be. Please indicate on the sign-up page that you can help during your teen's Alpha session and we'll be in touch with you to go over the details. Thank you for your support of the Alpha for Youth program!
