Whether you have just come home from your first ACTS retreat or are a veteran, ACTS Missions needs you. You have experienced the touch of God's love on your ACTS Retreat. You have experienced true Christian community. So now what? What is Your mission? How can you serve?
Please consider joining us!
A new association has been formed, ACTS Missioners. After an ACTS retreat, many search for a way to serve and ACTS Missioners was formed to serve two purposes. First, to provide a true avenue of service in the midst of our busy lives and, second, to provide the spiritual and financial resources to support the work of ACTS Missions.
ACTS Missioners support the work of reaching as many parishes and people as possible through the ACTS Retreat. Help us share your experience with the world. As you go forth from the retreat….go forth and light YOUR world …. light THE world. Not all of us can leave our homes and go to distant places, but all of us can become spiritual missionaries and share the work.
How many souls can be revitalized and filled with the Holy Spirit through the ACTS retreat? You have experienced the fullness and the life changing grace that sets a new course for our lives and the hope you have now is that others can experience the same.
As an ACTS Missioner, you will know the joy of retreatants around the world through news of our outreach and retreat schedule, where ACTS Missions is going, who has asked for the retreat, and join through prayer in the success of our apostolate and the ever expanding ACTS family.
After an ACTS Retreat, our hearts are full and we want to share the joy. The love of God and Christian community becomes real, revitalizing lives, parishes and whole communities. Many feel changed with the love of God and burn with a desire to serve. Now you can serve as an ACTS Missioner supporting the work of ACTS Missions.
The ACTS retreat addresses the need for us all to remain "attentive to the Spirit" and foster spiritual and community growth. Your commitment to ACTS Missions supports this apostolate and allows us to take the ACTS retreat to the rest of the world. Join us in evangelizing all of God's earth!
As an ACTS Missioner, you support ACTS Missions by:
- Committing to a rosary and/or an hour of adoration each month for the work of ACTS Missions to spread the ACTS retreat.
- Encouraging at least one person per year to attend an ACTS Retreat in their parish.
- Contributing a minimum $24 annually to support our work. ($2 per month minimum)
Where your $24 goes:
- 50% directly supports the ACTS Missions apostolate.
- 30% becomes restricted funds and is used exclusively toward the expense of sending out ACTS retreat missioning teams.
- 20% is returned to your home chapter to support local evangelization efforts.
So who are we?
Who are ACTS Missioners?
The best way to describe us would be to talk about the Missioners Patron Saint, St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, and her little way. She was a Carmelite Cloistered Nun who never traveled far from home and yet was named a Doctor and the Patron Saint of Missionaries by the Church.
As patron saint of ACTS Missioners, the Little Flower shows us how to make great impact on the world through her little way.
Her mission was to be "love in the heart of the Church." That is what we are-we are love in the heart of the Church. The heart of our evangelization is love. When you become an ACTS Missioner, your purpose is to love others toward Christ.
