The Alpha Course

What is the Alpha Course?

The Alpha Course is a series of sessions exploring the Christian Faith. All around the globe people are joining the conversation. At each session, we gather together to dine, enjoy a presentation surrounding a common question surrounding Faith, and then share and discuss the presentation over dessert and coffee. The St. Pius X Alpha Course is the Catholic application of the program with a focus on the Roman Catholic faith and anyone is welcome.

No two Alpha Course groups look the same, but generally have three key components in common: food, talk and great conversation! Check the website for information about the upcoming Alpha Course starting in September.
