On Tuesday September 12 at 7:00 PM, a new session of Alpha begins in our parishes at the BVM Hall in Stanleyville. Alpha is a tool to introduce people to an initial proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ. As Pope Francis says,`Nothing is more solid, profound, secure, meaningful and wisdom-filled than that initial proclamation (EG, 165).’
Alpha has three key elements: food, a talk and good conversation. It is for everyone; all backgrounds, all contexts, all ages, even those who do not believe in God or practice a faith. In addition to coming yourselves, please invite one person.
‘Alpha brings people closer and helps them to find that power which unites. The Alpha experience is not only a means through which one finds true life, but also a way to share the good news of the Living Christ.’
