ACTS is the acronym for Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. The retreat was inspired by the Acts of the Apostles 2:42-47. An ACTS retreat strives to achieve the directives of Vatican II and the goals of the Revised Code of Canon Law of 1983 to place more emphasis on “Community and Pastoral Care” within a parish; that the participants experience God’s love and joy throughout the weekend, and return to their parishes with a deeper love for each other and a desire to become more involved in the parish faith community.
The retreat allows the participants to focus on their faith and its application in their daily lives, build purpose in their prayer life, increase their presence at the liturgy, and cultivate friendship among members of the community. Spiritual direction will be provided throughout the weekend. Please note that all religious denominations are welcome. Participants must be 18 years of age or older to attend.

ACTS is inspired by the ACTS of the Apostles 2:42-47:
"They devoted themselves to the teachings of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of bread and to prayers. Awe came upon everyone and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one's need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals in exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And, every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved."
