Alpha Information & Courses for Autumn

Alpha has become very much part of our Diocesan Pastoral Plan, and plans are already in place for various parishes to begin Alpha courses in the Autumn.

Clonmel are holding an open night. An initial information evening was held in May, and they are now planning to begin Alpha in the Clonmel area in mid-September. This programme will be open to all parishes in and around Clonmel, and of course, is open to anyone! The start date will be given in the coming weeks.  In preparation of the launch of Alpha in our area, there will be another “Open Night” to see how a typical Alpha night will run, and to ask for ‘hosts’ to assist in the programme,  and discuss an optional training day taking place in Cork in August for anyone who would like to help run Alpha. (Further details will be given on the night). The Alpha “Open Night” will be on Tuesday 6 August 2019 in the Church of the Resurrection Hall, beginning with a meal at 7pm and ending at 9pm.
If you would like to attend (and to ensure numbers for catering purposes), please send your name and contact details to:  
Or you may call the Parish Office in SS Peter & Paul’s on: 052-6122138
