What relevance does Jesus have for our lives today? Come and See and bring a friend! Please join us for a complimentary informational dinner at St Frances Cabrini Parish 15333 Woodard Road, San Jose, California 95124
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a 10-week course that examines the basic teachings of Christianity. The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore spirituality from a Christian perspective. Relaxed nonthreatening, low-key and fun. Alpha is a place to ask anything—no question is considered too simple or too hostile. Alpha guests share a meal, listen to a series of talks and then have small group discussions. Each talk covers a fundamental question, such as: “Who is Jesus? “How does God guide us?” and “Why and how do I pray?”
Is Alpha for you?
Everyone is welcome, regardless of your religious affiliation or lack of one. You may want to investigate whether God exists and if there is any point to life; others are concerned about what happens after death. Still others may have attended church regularly but feel they have never really understood the basics of our Catholic Christian Faith. People come from many different backgrounds and hold many different viewpoints, but most come with the same basic objective: to establish whether God and Jesus Christ have any real relevance for their lives.
What will it cost?
The Alpha course is free. Guests are invited to make a voluntary donation of $5.00 towards the cost of dinners.
