The Office of Parish Evangelization will soon be rolling out post-Alpha training for parishes at each of the vicariates or regionally throughout the Diocese of Green Bay. These post-Alpha workshops will include training on setting up an Alpha leadership team option, a Connect Group option and discipleship group alignment option for parishes to consider. The establishment of these three basic post-Alpha options will take time. In the interim, for parishes that are looking for an immediate post-Alpha discipleship opportunity for their Alpha guests, the Office of Parish Evangelization is recommending The Wild Goose seriesby Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR.
Wild Goose Series Introduction: The Wild Goose is a work of the Holy Spirit, which is awakening in the hearts of all those participating God’s love and transforming power. This is a love that has been revealed to us by Jesus Christ and that leads us to our heavenly Father. As you walk through this series I will continually be praying that you will encounter the Holy Spirit and that the Spirit will breathe life into your very being.
Sessions: Like the Alpha Course, the success of The Wild Goose Series is will rest on a shared meal, video showing and a discussion to follow. Other ingredients for a successful rollout include hospitality, small group facilitators that are poised to listen and facilitate discussion, intercessory prayer, and a well-thought out plan to implement The Wild Goose series. Time and structure for each Wild Goose session can vary according to the needs of the parishes and Catholics schools.
