Alpha Continues!

Thursday 26th October

at 7:00pm, St. Bernadette's

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for everyone and anyone. The beauty of Alpha is that there are no questions that are too hostile, too silly or too simple. Alpha has no prerequisites whatsoever. We come together with one another as we are, free to be ourselves.

"Alpha is like a key which unlocks people's hearts to Jesus."
The Alpha Course is a course, approximately 11 weeks, which seeks to introduce the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions. It is described by its organisers as "an opportunity to explore the meaning of life".

First Friday Mass with Anointing of the Sick

Each first Friday of the month, there will be a celebration of the Eucharist at which there will be an opportunity for those who need it to receive the Sacrament of the Sick (Holy Anointing).

If you are sick, or going into hospital soon or starting treatment, then please come along and receive the strength that comes from this Sacrament as well as the prayers and encouragement of the parish community.

If you find it difficult to travel to Mass the please let us know and we may be able to arrange transport for you. This Mass will take place each first Friday of the month in St. John Bosco’s church at 11am.

There will also be tea and sandwiches afterwards. All are welcome. The next Mass will be on the 3rd November (please note there will be no Mass at 9.30am on that day).
