The eighth night of Alpha is the first night of overlap into RCIA/Catholicism 101. The schedule starting on that night will be as follows:
What is RCIA? What is Truth?
God, Creation, and the Problem of Evil
Mary and the Saints
Introduction to the Sacraments
Teaching Mass? TBD
RCIA/Catholicism 101 truly begins with our Alpha course. If you are considering coming to RCIA, please come to Alpha. Our first night will be Tuesday, September 12 at 7:00pm in the Kirby Ballroom. These evening gatherings will continue for the next eight nights and will lead directly into RCIA.
There is a fancy-schmancy term for how we utilize Alpha. In the ancient Church, they called it the “pre-catechumenate” and it was a time for people to become acquainted with the basic message of Christianity. Not only are these first eight weeks a chance to be introduced to (or reminded of) the Gospel, but they are a great chance to meet other people who are asking the same questions that you are.
