“Alpha was instrumental in rebooting my faith.”  – Jason Prini

FIRST SESSION: February 1, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Alpha provides a space to ask all your questions about life and faith in a friendly environment with others who, like you, want to explore. Each Alpha session includes supper, a short video, time to connect, and plenty of time to discuss. It doesn’t matter what you believe or don’t believe; come as you are. Check out the first night and see if it’s for you!

If you’ve taken Alpha before, who can you invite? Do you have friends, coworkers, family, or even neighbours who God is calling you to invite? Check out these 5 tips for inviting others to Alpha:

If you plan on bringing a friend to Alpha, we encourage you to register yourself also to help us plan numbers for the meal.


This Monday, two of our parishioners, Angèle and André Regnier, are being interviewed on EWTN about their faith story.

Angèle and André are the founders of Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO), a university student movement dedicated to evangelization on campuses across Canada.

The interview will air internationally at 8PM Eastern on Monday 1/22 on EWTN television, but for those who don’t have cable, all EWTN television content can be streamed for free at EWTN.com. Simply click “TV” and “Watch Live.” 


Does the thought of sharing your faith with others terrify you? We totally understand, which is why Annunciation is excited to announce a short 3-week small group series called Life Shared!

Have you been too busy to join our Life Shared groups in person? Sign up below to receive a link to the videos, which you can watch in the comfort of your own home. Better yet, gather a few friends and go through the series together at your own pace!
