Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course usually meets once a week for 10-12 weeks, sometimes in a church, a home, or a restaurant. Sessions begin with a meal, followed by a short talk, and time to discuss the topic.

During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and no question is considered hostile or too simple.  Questions might include –

  • Is there a God?

  • Why am I here?

  • Where did I come from?

  • Where am I going?

Alpha is for everyone – no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.


Our Parish, together with the Diocese of Green Bay, is making a dynamic reversal of our focus from being inward and maintenance-based to being outward and mission-oriented. This change occurs first in our hearts, through an encounter with Christ, then in our homes as we grow in our faith, and finally in our culture as we witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Bishop David Ricken has been leading us with “Disciples on the Way” and has successfully used the Alpha Course for more than three years to provide an encounter with Christ and now introduces Discipleship Groups to help us grow as motivated and passionate disciples of Christ.


“Only True Love is Reliable”

“I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13: 34-35).

St. John Paul II repeated over and over that the world was tired of listening to Christians talk. They want to see it lived out. They want saints. Saints are those whose lives have been conformed to the mind and heart of Jesus. Everything they do is driven by a desire to put the people around them into the arms of our Father in Heaven. We aspire as individuals and as a parish to give to our community an evermore credible witness to the difference that Jesus alone can make.
