Alpha 2022 – Alpha Refocus!

Alpha 2022: National Online Alpha with follow on Course and Scripture Reflection

In 2019 St. Mary’s Parish and Abbeyside Parish hosted an Alpha Course in Lawlors Hotel which was attended by up to 60 people. Hopes for another course were dashed by COVID- 19.

Alpha-Ireland is now directly organising and hosting an online Alpha Course on a Nationwide basis starting on Tuesday the 18th January 2022. It is called REFOCUS.


For full details see

It is to start on Tuesday, 18th January 2022 at 7.45pm for 11 weeks.

It cost nothing, there is no hassle in setting it up or running it, and at the end of the process a dedicated group of people focused on Parish Outreach will be there to help.


Refocus: A fresh start to look again and see how faith fits into everyday life.

Each session consists of a thought-provoking DVD followed by a discussion with a facilitator.

This course is being run on a nationwide basis with each parish having its own small groups of 7 – 8 people.
