‘For many years now and in various parts of the world, Alpha has shown itself powerful in bringing faith alive in all kinds of people.

Archbishop Allen Vigneron
Archbishop of Detroit

Archbishop Rino Fisichella
President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelisation
‘Alpha is without doubt a great experience of new evangelisation.’
