Saint John the Baptist Parish ACTS Ministry spreads the Gospel by promoting and coordinating ACTS Retreats. ACTS Retreats are given by parishioners for parishioners, and in this way, serve to build our Christian community at our parish.
Through the ACTS retreat, ACTS Missions provides a spark that ignites Catholics world-wide with the eternal flame of the Holy Spirit. As an instrument of God, ACTS is a light that will help bring about the New Evangelization by fostering love and true discipleship, leading others to a commitment and obedience to Our Lord Jesus Christ by our every word, action and thought.
The ACTS Retreat begins Thursday evening and ends with Sunday Mass. An ACTS Retreat meets people where they are in their spiritual journey and invites them to experience God in a manner that is both personal and communal.
