What have recent participants said about Alpha?
“I felt like I was just an anonymous church-goer who was lukewarm in faith. Now I am much more comfortable around everyone else. I am comfortable in my identity as a Catholic. More community is great for everyone!”
“Alpha has encouraged me to explore my faith more.”
“Before, my spiritual life was separate from my earthly life. Now there is more merging of the two.”
“I was afraid to communicate/validate my love for Jesus and God. Now I am not afraid and with His strength I’m ready to take small or big steps.”
“Now I have a more open minded perspective of Catholic faith and faith of all Christians.”
“With Alpha I have appreciated the Church community even more, and found good, new friends. The healing from those people during Alpha was extraordinary to me personally.”
“I learned more from others. Their opinions made me appreciate my faith and God.”
