Set up online donations
to St. Alphonsus. Subscribe to our
free e-newsletter, with up-to-the-minute information on parish news and events.
We offer a variety of programs, ongoing, seasonal and special events, to help the members of the parish grow in their faith and their spiritual lives. Besides the regular programs detailed here, check the web site and bulletin regularly for more opportunities.
Becoming a Catholic or being confirmed
Each year, about 40 to 50 adults celebrate the sacraments of baptism, confirmation or receive the Eucharist for the first time at St. Alphonsus. For full information on these programs, go here.
Catholicism 101 is offered in the spring of each year, beginning in March. In six sessions, we cover the basics of the faith - how Catholics believe, how Catholics pray, how Catholics live.
The course is a good refresher. It also serves as an introduction for those who are dating or married to a Catholic, or for those who are beginning an investigation about becoming Catholic.
Full information for 2013 is available here.
Seasons - Advent and Lent
- For Advent, we offer a number of resources to help you celebrate the season well. These include the "Little Blue Book" of daily reflections, available at church and a wealth of online materials.
- During Lent, there are a number of ways to deepen your faith.
- The "Little Black Books" are given out at church on the Sunday before Ash Wednesday.
- A comprehensive guide to online materials is available.
- Small faith sharing groups are formed, usually focused on discussing a book or set of readings.
Ten Minute Catechism
Every Lent, Ten Minute Catechism is offered after the 5:30 PM (Saturday) and 10:30 AM and 5:00 PM masses (Sunday).
The session takes exactly ten minutes (by the timer!) in the church, so one just stays after the recessional.
A different theme is chosen each year for the series. The handouts and presentations are posted.

Each summer, a four or five week 'short course' in Scripture is offered in August. On occasion, there are some other courses offered during the winter.
In addition, there are two online Gospel reflection courses available:
