Men's Fall ACTS Retreat

Registration opens Saturday, September 10
***More information to follow soon***

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, with support of parish clergy, and in this way, serve to build Christian community within the parish.  ACTS is an acronym based on the activities and fruits of the retreat.

Adoration - A response to God's love through prayer and worship

Community - Participating in the One Body of Christ as Church

Theology - Deepening our relationship with God in order to better fulfill His will 

Service - Answering the call to discipleship by following the model He gave us.

The ACTS Retreat begins Thursday evening and ends with Sunday 11 a.m. Mass at St. Aloysius. Transportation from St. Aloysius to the retreat center and back is provided.

While utilizing prayer, service, and teaching, the ACTS Retreat meets people where they are in their spiritual journey and invites them to experience God in a manner that is both personal and communal.

The ACTS Retreat experience is rooted in the Pascal Mystery in that retreatants are invited to reflect on the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Throughout the weekend, they are invited to prayerfully consider how they can respond to His love by spiritually surrendering to Jesus in order to have new life with Him.

Those who attend an ACTS retreat share in an experience that has impacted more than one million lives worldwide since the first retreat in 1987. There are numerous testimonies describing retreatants who were evangelized through a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. They witness to becoming better fathers, mothers, husbands, wives and children.  

Parishes have been revitalized, diaconate classes have been filled, and all seek to deepen their  relationship with Christ through  prayer and service.  As a result, ACTS is supported by bishops and priests worldwide as a legitimate participant in the Church's New Evangelization. Through ACTS, the laity respond to their baptismal call, and seek to participate in the apostolic mission of the Church to "go and make disciples of all nations," and this has been found to be good.
