The next Women's Retreat will be June 8-11.
You are invited to join us for an extraordinary weekend!
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.
ABOUT THE RETREAT
The retreat allows an opportunity for 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. A Spiritual companion is provided during the weekend. Please note that all religious denominations are welcome.
It is a three-day, three-night weekend retreat presented by Catholic lay people who are parishioners like you. The retreat begins Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m. and concludes on Sunday at the 11:30 a.m. Mass at the parish. Immediately following the Mass, retreatants have the opportunity to share refreshments and fellowship with their families and other members of the parish community.
The cost for each retreatant is $190. This covers all meals and lodging. A registration deposit of $90 must be submitted with registration to reserve your place. The remaining balance of $100 is due Thursday, June 8, at check-in.
Please do not let the cost of the retreat keep you from participating. If you are in need of financial assistance, or have questions, please contact the Retreat Director, Kathy Anderson, Kathyanderson@ebby.com.
