The Alpha Course & Discovering Christ

We want to express our gratitude and honor for the Alpha course. Alpha is a most remarkable evangelizing course that has impacted millions of people worldwide. For years we trained Catholics to use this ecumenical course and ran it ourselves. We have seen thousands come to new or renewed faith in Christ through it in Catholic parishes in the U.S. and internationally.

We at ChristLife and the many Catholic parishes that use Alpha owe a lot to our Anglican brothers and sisters at Holy Trinity Brompton, London, England, where Alpha was developed. Alpha is a great testimony to Christian unity, as many different traditions use this course. It is helping many parishes evangelize. We thank God for it.

Since we recognize that some dioceses and parishes will not use the Alpha course, we felt it was important to develop a Catholic encounter course - Discovering Christ - that would support those parishes in the mission of evangelization.
