RETREATS FOR MEN AND WOMEN
Adoration- the call by, acceptance of, and response to God
Community – the love and caring of each other
Theology- the study of God through scripture and the Catholic Faith Tradition.
Service- the gift of self to God and His people.
An ACTS retreat is a three day and three nights Catholic lay retreat led by fellow parishioners. The retreat begins on Thursday evenings and ends the following Sunday at a Mass celebrated with the parish community. Retreats for men and retreats for women are given separately. Talks and activities during the retreat focus on Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service, from which the ACTS acronym is derived. Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are the guides for the retreats. The retreat takes on the traditions and atmosphere of the parish community sponsoring it. The retreat facilitates the attainment of a new or deeper relationship with the Lord and the community.
