Formation & Evangelization Alpha Formation & Evangelization



Alpha is a series of 9 sessions exploring the Christian faith with an optional Saturday retreat. The talks look at different questions about Christianity to help you to develop and grow in a relationship with God. Whether you’re not sure that God exists or he’s your good friend, you’re welcome to come.

Each night consists of food, a talk, and great conversation. Food has a way of bringing people together so we start with dinner. Dinner provides a great opportunity to meet others in the parish! After dinner, we watch a video talk by an engaging speaker followed by discussion in a small group. The group is a chance to share thoughts and ideas on the night’s topic in an honest, friendly, open environment. If you don’t want to talk, there’s no obligation. Just listen to what the others have to say!

This year, Alpha will meet on Wednesday nights at 7:00 in the school dining room. The first session is on October 9.The schedule for a typical night looks like this:

7:00 Dinner
7:45 Announcements
8:00 Video presentation
8:30 Small groups
9:15 Dismissal

Over 600 people have attended Alpha at St. Norbert Parish and most have told us that they grew from taking the course. Many have told us that it changed their lives!
