Alpha | Catholic Context 

About Us

Alpha helps answer the call of the New Evangelization:

Our vision is to equip the clergy and laity to effectively proclaim Jesus, utilizing Alpha as a primary tool of evangelization.  Focused on the Kerygma, we each experience new and deeper life in Christ through a personal encounter with him.  Focused on the young, those on the fringes faith, those outside the Church and lapsed Catholics, we journey with them to new life in Christ and His Church. 

Alpha is endorsed by Catholic Bishops and offered by hundreds of parishes around the world. Alpha is featured on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website - click here to view.
