A.C.T.S. Retreat: An ACTS Retreat is a Catholic lay retreat presented by fellow parishioners. The retreat begins on Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday at a Mass celebrated with the parish community. Retreats for men and retreats for women are given separately. The retreat facilitates the attainment of a new or deeper relationship with the Lord through:
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; and
Service: to God and His people.
This is an opportunity to grow in love for God, your Catholic faith and your parish community. St. Monica sponsors the retreats in partnership with St. Richard. If you have questions or would like to attend the retreat, please call the St. Monica Parish Office at 434-4211 or contact St. Richard parishioners Doug or Karen Meadows at firstname.lastname@example.org or 993-2916.
