Alpha

St. Andrew's Cathedral is offering a 12-week course (Alpha) in which we will be exploring questions about life and faith.  The purpose of Alpha is to help those in attendance (through food, fellowship and formation) have an encounter with Jesus Christ.  Starting September 19th at 6:00 pm in the Seghers' Hall we will be exploring these most important questions or life together in a community of friendship. This is a great  course for those who have never really gone more deeply into their faith or also a great course to invite a friend to who has expressed interest in these questions.  Space is limited.  To register, please contact the parish office at 250-388-5571 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Bible Study

Starting Thursday, September 21, 2017, 9:30 am - 11:30 am in the parish centre we will be offering a 24-week study (with a break for Christmas) on the Gospel of Luke.  Most scholars conclude that Luke was of a gentile origin acquainted with Jewish history, culture and faith, so his perspective is unique and significant in Scripture.  It is interesting to note that 19 of Jesus' 35 parables are found only in Luke.


To register, please contact the parish office at 250-388-5571.  A donation of $7 to cover the cost of the materials would be appreciated.


 

For Young Adults

Are you between the ages of 24 - 36?  Then you're perfect for our resurrected Young Adults Group facilitated by Fr. Harrison Ayre.  Following the 5 pm Sunday Mass, we will meet each week in the parish centre for food, discussion and fellowship.  Our topics will be many and varied, but our primary purpose is to create a space for young adults of the Cathedral parish to make lasting friendships with other Catholics.
