Mary Lou Britton talks about her Alpha experience
Everyone should consider Alpha ..... This is why.....
"We all live such busy hectic lives, sometimes we just need to stop the world and get off! I recently had a tragic Loss, my sweet Godson, and Nephew. He was a promising 29-year-old...... gone way to soon from incurable Brain Tumor. As I still struggle with his loss, I also struggled with God, and of course, my faith. Sitting in Mass one Sunday, Alpha was being "advertised " and explained- I was intrigued."
Could this give me at least some peace? At least some small sliver of Why???
"Well... It most certainly did. There was something about gathering to break bread and discuss all the aspects of our faith each week. I found I was becoming excited to see my new friends every Wednesday."
"Every week there is a new theme, new discussions. All wonderful and thought-provoking for me, in my journey, to forgive God, since I had no one else to blame for my unbearable sadness. Through Alpha, I realized it is true faith, your faith that brings you peace and assists us through our struggles in our Daily Lives." -Mary Lou Britton
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.
Alpha is for young adults and adults to help learn about and grow in their own faith, and foster an environment of life-long faith formation. Alpha offers great retreats, workshops, and gatherings for all ages. In particular, it is attracting many young people who are asking the question, “Is there more to life than this?” Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith. It is evangelization based on welcome and hospitality, sharing and prayer.
Alpha is great for:
- Adults who are curious about Christianity
- People who were raised in a church but have drifted away over the years
- Faithful people who want a safe place to talk about their questions and doubts
- Parents of all ages, wondering how to keep the faith in turbulent times
Our next Alpha series begins with a "Come and See" night on!
