We will be holding the Alpha Course anew in the Autumn term.
We especially recommend the Alpha Course to parents who have children in the school and who wish to further their Christian initiation. We know nothing better to enthuse you and support you in your desire to nurture the Christian life in your children. For this reason we will not begin sacramental preparation until later, after the mid-term break.
We are holding two Alpha Courses; one on Thursday evening, 20th September at 7pm, and one on Friday morning, 21st September at 9am.
The session begins with a simple meal, then a 25 minute film follows, after which we can freely discus what we have seen for a further 25 minutes.
If you speak with anyone who has done the Alpha Course, you will know that it is very enjoyable – come and discover for yourself!

Novena to ask God to bless the visit of the Friars to our parish, and to act powerfully during those days of ‘Blest’, 29th April to 3rd May.
This Novena begins on Friday 20th April 2018.
Eternal Father, You so loved the world that you gave your only Son, that we might believe in him and have eternal life. Through the power of your Holy Spirit, give us the courage to witness to the Joy of the Gospel by our words and actions. Help our parish of St Ignatius, here in West Yorkshire, to be more welcoming and missionary. Act powerfully in our midst, during the visit of the Friars of the Renewal; that Your son be more known and loved. We ask this through Our Lord, Jesus Christ, Amen.
