What is ALPHA?

ALPHA, a 14-week course, is a practical introduction to the Catholic Christian faith. ALPHA serves as:

  • the first and highly recommended phase of sacramental preparation for adults who need to be baptized, confirmed, and/or to make their First Communions in the Catholic Church;
  • a refresher course for Catholics returning to the Church after an absence from full practice;


  • a refresher course for fully-initiated, practicing Catholics.

The second phase of the process for people preparing for any sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion), RCIA, begins in January 2017.


Each class begins with a light meal provided by the parish, followed by a talk on a fundamental Christian topic and group discussion. Come, join us, and bring a friend.
