St. Francis

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 


At St. Francis, we're thrilled to be launching our first 11-week ALPHA COURSE on Thurs., Jan. 24.  Share an amazing meal (beginning at 6:30pm), explore life and the Christian faith in an open, informal and friendly environment, take a break from our busy, hectic lives, foster new friendships, answer questions about life and faith.


There is no charge!  We welcome you to reach out to talk with us about how Alpha may be right for you.  Click the link below to download our brochure or contact us directly (contact information below).
