ACTS Men's Retreat

ACTS - Men’s Retreats


ACTS is an acronym for Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. Our ACTS retreats help us strengthen our faith, renew ourselves spiritually, build lasting friendships, and serve our parish. The ACTS retreat is presented by lay men and spiritual direction is provided by clergy. All men age 18 or older are invited to attend.

This men’s retreat is unique in that The Church of the Resurrection is the host and sponsoring church with coordination and support provided by St. Louis parish. First consideration for retreatants will be given to current members of the Church of the Resurrection.

We return to Church of the Resurrection on Sunday, August 27th, for the 12:00 noon Mass, with a reception following Mass. Family members and friends are invited and encouraged to attend both the Mass and reception.
