“I had been searching for ways to get closer to God on my own. The ACTS Retreat helped me to strengthen that
relationship in so many ways.”

“The ACTS Retreat Weekend for me was a spiritual awakening and much needed conversion. Now I am directing my focus and energy on following Him
and striving to stay on this long-life path.”

“My ACTS Retreat showed me how to listen to Gods whispers even in the most
noisy day-to-day experiences.”

“I’ve wanted to get to know my fellow parishioners better. The ACTS Retreat gave me quality time to get to know and form new lasting relationships w/ my fellow Retreatants and the Team.”
