A Women's ACTS Retreat is a 3-day, 3-night Catholic lay retreat presented by fellow parishioners. The purpose is to provide an opportunity to develop a deeper relationship with the Lord and fellow parishioners through Adoration and daily prayer; through Community in one’s parish as a member of the Body of Christ; through Theology or the teachings of our Catholic faith by encouraging more study; and, to instill a virtue of Service to our Lord, our parish and each other. ACTS is an acronym for Adoration, Community, Theology and Service and it is these four themes that are the focus of the activities of the weekend. ACTS is inspired by the ACTS of the Apostles 2:42-47.

An ACTS retreat strives to achieve the directives of Vatican II and the goals of the Revised Code of Canon Law of 1983 to place more emphasis on “Community and Pastoral Care” within a parish; that the participants experience God’s love and joy throughout the weekend, and return to their parishes with a deeper love for each other and a desire to become more involved in the parish faith community. All denominations are welcomed.
