An ACTS retreat is a three-day retreat led by those who have attended prior ACTS retreats. Men present men’s retreats and women present women’s retreats. The retreat focuses on Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church are the guidelines. The goals are to renew yourself spiritually, to strengthen your faith, apply it in your daily life and to create lasting and supporting friendships. Participants return to their faith communities with a deeper love for each other and a desire to become more involved.
