Three Chester County parishes – two in West Chester and one in Paoli — will be offering the Alpha Course on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays this fall.
The Alpha Course is a 10-week, 15-session introduction to the Christian faith but is also for those seeking ways to enrich or rediscover their faith. Adults of all ages are invited to attend one session or all 10. A light meal and refreshments are offered at each session.
Participants will find the answers to questions such as: Do you feel as if something is missing from your life? What is the meaning of life?
A sample Alpha evening will be presented without registration fee, and include a light meal and refreshments, at an Info Dinner at the following parishes:
