What is an ACTS Retreat?
An ACTS Retreat is a parish-based event which offers parishioners an opportunity to experience the love of Jesus Christ. This in turn fosters a desire for intentional discipleship.
ACTS Retreats are given by parishioners for parishioners, and in this way, serve to build Christian community at the parish. – Taken from www.actsmissions.org
The ACTS community strives to assist members of the parish family to attain a deeper relationship with the Lord and with fellow parishioners through
- Adoration: Responding through prayer and worship to receiving God’s gifts of grace, mercy and love
- Community: Living and participating in the One Body of Christ as Church, beginning with the parish
- Theology: Deepening our relationship with God through prayerful study to better understand and fulfill His will for our lives
- Service: Answering the call to discipleship by following the model Christ gave to us
To achieve this goal, a three-day weekend experience is planned for both women and men.

Retreat for Women
This group meets annually at Well Spring Retreat Center. It is a time for women to get away from the normal routine to reflect, enjoy time with others and reconnect in a special way with God.
