Adoration. Community. Theology. Service.

“God the Father has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

Colossians 1:13-14

ACTS retreats are structured on the foundation of Adoration, Community, Theology and Service.

Much more than a “program”, ACTS is designed to unleash the power of the Holy Spirit in a way that truly transforms parishes from a collection of members into living together as a community of disciples.

Founded in San Antonio, TX in 1987, ACTS is now an international movement with over 650,000 participants having encountered Christ through a parish retreat.

Parishioners come together to experience how their daily lives are positively impacted by God’s Word and the Holy Sacraments.

This weekend parish retreat deepens the understanding and practice of the faith, empowering and equipping participants to live their faith more joyfully and confidently.
