  • ABOUT ACTS | Boston ACTS Chapter

    WHAT IS AN ACTS RETRAT An ACTS Retreat is a parish-based event which offers parishioners an opportunity to experience the love of Jesus Christ. This in turn fosters a desire for intentional discipleship. ​ ACTS Retreats are given by parishioners for parishioners, and in this way, serve to build Christian community at the parish. THE RETREAT EXPERIENCE The ACTS Retreat begins Thursday evening and ends with Sunday Mass in the parish. ​ 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.” It’s Spiritual Reflection… The ACTS Retreat experience is rooted in the Pascal Mystery in that retreatants are invited to reflect on the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. …And Spiritual Surrender Throughout the weekend, retreatants 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.
