From Fr Suresh
What happened on the 50th day after the resurrection of Christ, was not simply an event, which took place and was over; it was only the beginning: it takes place and is taking place now and here, in a different manner, visibly and less intensely. Just take a moment and look around the Church, people from all over the place and from different ethnic backgrounds. It was all possible by the power of the Holy Spirit who descended upon them and made them Missionaries to spread the Gospel all over the world. God is Spirit is to be discovered in Spirit and truth - in prayer, meditation and good works.

WHAT IS ALPHA? Alpha is a series of DVD talks that simply “Explore the meaning of life” through our Catholic faith. Alpha is not only an opportunity for practicing Catholics to deepen their own faith, but also an opportunity to invite someone along with no faith at all, to learn more about what we believe. Alpha creates an environment where any question about life or faith can be asked & discussed. Each session begins with a time of fellowship, followed by a short DVD, which is discussed afterwards in a very relaxed, & low- key environment.
Read the testimonies of parishioners who have attended.
The Alpha Course will be held inside the church at OLQP Greystanes on the following Tuesday nights, between 7:00pm – 9:00pm April – 28, May – 5, 12, 19, 26, June – 2, 9
