ALPHA PROGRAM FOR HIGH SCHOOLERS
Holy Spirit Faith Formation is excited to bring the Alpha program to our high schoolers for 2019-20. This is an opportunity for them to follow the path of “Disciples on the Way,” encouraged by Bishop Ricken and Fr. Carl, through the process of New Evangelization. Students will learn to DISCOVER Jesus, FOLLOW Jesus, WORSHIP Jesus and SHARE Jesus. This will be a spiritual journey for your student. Alpha is a weekly small group of learning and conversations with the purpose of deepening their relationship with Jesus Christ.
To be successful we need your support. We hope to have about 150 students attend the program this year. They will meet for 10 weeks. Please consider where you can be part of the success of this new opportunity for our teens.
- Food: Donate a bag of chips, popcorn, pretzels, cookies, etc. Please drop off at the Parish Center labeled “Alpha.”
- Monetary donation: Please mark the envelope “Alpha” and drop at Parish Center or in the collection at Mass.
- Small group leader: If you feel called to help with a small group (8-10 students), please contact Tim.

What is the Bishop’s Appeal? The Bishop’s Appeal is a stewardship opportunity for each of us to reach out to thousands of people in search of Jesus’ love. Each gift given supports the ministries of the Diocese of Green Bay which serve our parishes, Catholic schools, and communities. Your gift truly helps bring the heart and hands of Christ to our children, young adults, families and neighbors here in northeastern Wisconsin.
