What is Alpha?

Alpha is a place to explore life’s big questions in a safe and open environment where everyone can share their thoughts and opinions without being judged.

This series of informal sessions typically runs for 9 weeks plus a mini-retreat. Each unique topic touches on the basics of Christian faith. A simple meal, short video and the opportunity to discuss life’s big questions in an honest and safe space is the format. Everyone is welcome, no matter where you are in your faith journey.

 Alpha is offered by thousands of parishes around the world, endorsed by Catholic Bishops and Cardinals, and
the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.


St. Andrew is proud to offer Alpha this fall.  Stay tuned for dates and times.
