A.C.T.S. is a Catholic renewal movement and a retreat experience that is administered by parishioners for parishioners, offering weekends for spiritual growth. Talks and activities during the retreat sessions focus on Adoration, Community, Theology and Service, hence the acronym A.C.T.S. You will return to your faith community with an increased desire to become more involved in your relationship with God, your relationship with your family, and your relationship with your community.
