What is an ACTS retreat?
An ACTS retreat is a three-day and three-night Catholic lay retreat presented by fellow parishioners, under the guidance of the pastor. The retreat begins on Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday at a Mass celebrated with the parish community.
Talks and activities during the retreat focus on Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service, from which the ACTS acronym is derived, and through which a new or deeper relationship with our Lord is cultivated:
– Our response to God's invitation to a personal relationship with Him
– The love and support of each other as the Mystical Body of Christ
– The renewal of our minds and hearts through Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church
– To give ourselves back to God, to His people, and to all those whom God places in our path
Each retreat is conducted by a retreat team of around 36 members who have attended prior ACTS retreats. Chosen by the retreat Director, the team organizes the retreat, conducts the retreat talks and activities, and ministers to the needs of the retreatants during the retreat weekend. Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church are the guides for the retreats.
