Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service
ACTS is an International non-profit lay apostolate, faithful to the Catholic Church, whose purpose is to spread the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ World-Wide through the ACTS Retreat experience.
The ACTS movement came to birth from the Cursillo Movement through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. ACTS started in 1987 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Selma, Texas, a small suburb of San Antonio.
ACTS Missions was founded in 1997 to take the ACTS Retreat to new Parishes all over the world so that the ACTS Community would be alive in all parishes. ACTS has grown to 27 States in the US, 8 Countries and over 700 Parishes Worldwide. Over 1 Million people have attended an ACTS Retreat Weekend.
The ACTS retreat has become a Parish Weekend Retreat patterned after the description of the early Church in the Acts of the Apostles (ACTS 2:42-47); breaking bread together, worshiping together, receiving instruction together, sharing in common, and reaching out in loving service. After the Weekend, participants are encouraged to reach out to parish activities.
When available, registration forms are available to the left, under Documents.
Due to the uncertainty caused by the Corona Virus, lengthy time required to reserve facilities and plan the retreat, there are no ACTS retreats scheduled at this time. We anticipate retreats scheduled during 2022.
