ACTS Registration / Winter 2020
ACTS retreats started just 26 years ago, and are enormously popular in over 600 parishes in six countries. Pastors have praised its positive effects on their parish life. Bishops have called it the most important movement in the Catholic Church today.
Each retreat starts on Thursday evening with check-in, and continues into Sunday with a pot-luck lunch after the 11:30 am Mass. The retreats start and end at St. Francis Church, but the main activities and lodging will be at Camp Hiawatha in Wichita.
ACTS retreats have enriched the lives of more than one million people. They witness that their ACTS retreat was instrumental in changing their lives, making good decisions, and leading them to become better friends, spouses, and parents. Many talk of their personal encounter with the love of Jesus.
ACTS retreats focus on the life and joy of the early Christian communities, as described in ACTS 2:42 –“They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to prayers.”
These retreats are for all adults of all ages, whether new converts, RCIA candidates, or cradle Catholics. The warm, faithful, welcoming environment supports and teaches all of us wherever we are in our faith. We all grow; and with this, the spiritual life of the parish community grows. There is something powerfully different in the heartfelt unity among participants at the end of the retreat.
Comments from recent ACTS retreats:
“It was amazing to be able to experience the love that was present from the almost 45 women that I had just met that weekend. To have that much love and acceptance in one room was very humbling. No one can leave something like this being unchanged. The Holy Spirit was definitely at work!" – Maria Newman
“The hospitality of the team immediately put me at ease. I was greatly impacted by the retreat and am thrilled to have met a wonderful group of men I am honored to call my brothers.” --Jeff Hauge
“The ACTS Retreat was a very powerful awakening full of inspiration, friendships, spirituality, humor and fellowship! It’s something you can only experience not explain! I highly recommend it!” --Jim McAnarney
