You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses. (Acts 1:8)
The Sacrament of Confirmation is all about the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Our confirmation preparation program for youth is designed to help us tap into the power that God has given us. It is an unforgettable journey, leaving you with the mark of the Holy Spirit and the Power to defend your Faith, inspiring those around you.
Invitation to the Alpha Experience
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that engages people in conversations about faith, life and Jesus. Every Alpha session includes food, a short talk (on video or live), and discussion. Alpha is highly recommended for those whose families are preparing to celebrate a sacrament. St. Alphonsus Liguori will be offering Alpha this Fall. We begin Alpha on Thursday, September 28th at 6:30PM in our Parish Hall (located behind the Church). Alpha is free and childcare is available.
