Visitation B.V.M. Parish in Norristown is hosting the Alpha Course on Thursday evenings in the Visitation B.V.M. School Library, 196 North Trooper Road (use the entrance closest to corner of Chestnut St. and N. Trooper Rd).
An information evening will be held Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m., and light snacks will be served. The course begins with dinner Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m.
The Alpha Course is a 10-week, practical introduction to the Christian faith for non-believers as well as those seeking ways to enrich or rediscover their faith. Adults and teens from seventh grade and up are invited, and are encouraged to bring a friend.
Explore the fundamental questions of life such as: Is there any point to life? How do we find freedom? Is there more to life than this?
Participants may attend one session or all 10. Free babysitting is offered.
For meal planning purposes, please preregister with John at 610-513-7227. Walk-ins are also welcome.
