What is ACTS ?
An ACTS Retreat is a parish-based event which offers our community an opportunity to experience the love of Jesus Christ. This in turn fosters a desire for intentional discipleship.Here at St. Joseph we have annual Women's, Men's and Teen ACTS Retreat programs each year. Please contact the parish office to for more information.
The ACTS Retreat begins Thursday evening and ends with Sunday Mass at St. Joseph in Devine. While utilizing prayer, service, and teaching, the 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.
In this way, the ACTS Retreat fulfills the mission of:"Spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ among Catholic communities through ACTS."
At this time it is best practice that we all participate in social distancing
during this time.
We look forward to a time when we can continue this great Ministry.
Armor of God
"Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power.
Put on the armor of God
so that you may be able to stand firm
against the tactics of the devil.
For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits
in the heavens.
Throughout the weekend, participants are invited to prayerfully consider how they can respond to His love by spiritually surrendering to Jesus in order to have new life with Him. This invitation is extended through the pillars of the apostolate:
A response to God's love through
prayer and worship.
Participating in the One
Body of Christ as Church.
Deepening our relationship with God in order to better fulfill His will.
Answering the call to discipleship by following the model He gave us.
"As for me and my household we will serve the lord."
“My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.”
