Alphabits is a project funded, in part, by the St. John Paul II fund for religious education and youth ministry. The purpose of the project is to help parents understand their roles as “first teachers in the ways of faith” (footnote to Catholic Rite of Baptism).
By 2025, which is the year when the youngest Alphas are born, Generation Alpha will account for 2 billion of the global population. These children of millennials and late Gen X-ers are very different than generations before them.
To help them grow in their faith, we need to start earlier than ever – and since many millennials have drifted away from their own faith – it will take all of us to make a difference in the lives of young people today.
