You are invited to a life-changing weekend.
This is your opportunity to have dedicated uninterrupted time with our heavenly Father, to refresh your spirit and to do nothing other than experience God's love. This will be an opportunity for spiritual renewal and the making of many friends. Food and fellowship are included. Transportation will be provided. All retreats are held at the Three Mountain Retreat Center in Clifton, TX. Registration is now under way for ACTS Spring retreats sponsored by St. Louis Parish in Waco.
Dates of retreats
St. Louis Catholic Church Women's Spring Retreat: March 16-19, 2017
St. Louis Catholic Church Men's Spring Retreat: March 23-26, 2017
These are the four themes for an ACTS Retreat.
The ACTS Movement started in 1987 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Selma, Texas. It has evolved into a weekend retreat patterned after the description of the early church in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:42-47): breaking bread together, worshipping together, receiving instruction together, sharing in common and reaching out in loving service. No two retreats are exactly alike. Each one is unique due to the individuality of each team that leads the retreat.
The retreat weekend offers an opportunity to relax and focus on your faith journey. Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are the guides for the retreats. Spiritual direction will be available during the retreat.
The retreat takes on the traditions and atmosphere of the parish community sponsoring it. The retreat facilitates the attainment of a new or deeper relationship with the Lord through: Adoration - the call by, acceptance of, and response to God; Community - the love and caring of each other; Theology - the study of God through scripture and the Catholic Faith; Service - to God and his people.
With the addition of England, both Catholics and non-Catholics are now experiencing ACTS in five countries around the world, including Honduras, South Africa; Canada and eight states in Mexico, along with every diocese in Texas, and 21 other states in the U.S. (From the ACTS Mission website).
