A.C.T.S. Ministry

An ACTS retreat is a three-day, three-night Catholic lay retreat presented by fellow parishioners as Apostolic Christians Teaching for Service (ACTS). Talks and activities will focus on Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service. Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church are the guidelines for the retreat. The purpose of the retreat is to instill in the retreatant a new and deeper relationship with our Lord and fellow parishioners through prayer, fellowship, and the teachings of the Catholic faith, and the experience of service to our Lord, our parish, and each other.

For more information on any of these ministries, please contact the church office.
