Maybe you know nothing about Christianity; or maybe you’ve been going to church your entire life and sense the Lord is calling you to go deeper.
No matter what you are going through in your life right now; no matter how far you feel God is from you right now, Jesus loves you and wants a relationship with you.

Encounters at Notre Dame Parish are about entering into this relationship with Jesus through beautiful, authentic, accompanied experiences and recognizing his presence in our lives and in others. Are you seeking meaning or community? We invite you to one of our encounter experiences…

What is Alpha?
Alpha is an interactive weekly experience offered over 11 weeks to explore life and the basics of the Christian faith, in a friendly, open and informal space. Wherever you are in your faith journey, we invite you to gather together to share a complimentary meal, watch a video, and then break out in small groups to explore some of life’s big questions.

Who is Alpha For?
Alpha is for everyone and anyone. The beauty of Alpha is that there are no questions that are too hostile, too silly or too simple. Alpha has no prerequisites. We come together with one another as we are; free to be ourselves. Over 29 million people across the globe have experienced Alpha.

How Can I Take Part?
Stay tuned for our launch of Alpha at Notre Dame parish in Fall 2024.

The Rescue Project is free. Dinner and childcare are provided.

Who is The Rescue Project For?
