THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
ADULT ALPHA COURSE 2014
Alpha is a course which allows people to
explore their faith in a simple, social, relaxed and
non-threatening way. It is Christ-centred and based
on Scripture and has the backing of all Christian
Denominations. It is our hope that a good number of
people will avail of this course in Bunclody which will
begin on the 24th of September.
Our Alpha programme will take place in the
Pastoral Centre for ten Wednesday nights beginning
on Wednesday September 24th and will conclude on
December 3rd. It will run from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
each night. Participants are asked for a small
contribution towards tea and coffee.
Alpha Courses are taking place all over the
world, in parishes, schools, factories and even
prisons. They explain the main questions of faith
such as “Who is Jesus?”, “Why do we pray?”, Does
Jesus heal today?”.
To book a place please contact the Parish Office,
(053) 9376190
To find out more please go to alpha Ireland website
at www.alphaireland.org
There is a great and constant need to update
our knowledge of the faith and the values given to
us by Jesus to help us become good people. This
Alpha Course is an excellent opportunity to increase
and enhance our knowledge of the Good News.
South East Radio—Gospel Sounds: Starting this Sunday
7th Sept. 8:30 - 9:00pm. There will be nine programmes on
the Beatitudes. A beginners’ guide to Christian living. The
Beatitudes list eight categories of people said by Jesus to
be blessed, happy and fortunate. They are as relevant to us
in the 21st century as they were to those listening to Jesus
in the Sermon on the Mount 2,000 years ago. The message
is far from being a pie-in-the-sky for the would-be saintly.
They are a call to each of us who stand up for the name of
being Christian and they give clear guidelines for our
thoughts, attitudes and actions. Tune into the challenge!
