Mellins on the Camino Post

Today is Saturday, July 7, 2018.   Debbie and Jerry finished their 34 day walk. This is a link to their last post and previous posts. 

Date: Coming this fall, Wednesdays 7:00 pm
Location: Mullen Commons Vista

Last Fall we launched the first-ever Alpha Course at St. John Vianney and it was a success! 75 parishioners gathered to explore some of life's big questions; questions that we rarely have enough time to think about such as: Why am I here? What's my purpose? Where am I heading? Is there more to life than this? Many made new friends and some of those ‘new’ friends continue to meet in each other’s homes to share faith and hospitality.

If you crave a deeper connection with God and others, try Alpha. Alpha is a rare opportunity to explore questions of life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No pressure. No charge. No follow up.

Alpha runs in churches, homes, coffee shops, and bars all over the world. It typically includes a meal, a video and time afterwards for sharing your thoughts. Alpha is open to all people, whether you’re a regular parishioner who’s just curious about what this new program might be or you’re interested in learning more about Christianity, you are welcome to attend!
