Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As we monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are aware of communities and dioceses taking precautions to protect its members. We strongly advise following recommendations that your dioceses have issued. We have taken similar steps for our office and store staff.
We offer the following guidance in support of precautions regarding ACTS Retreats:
1) Parish Pastors have the authority to decide whether to cancel or reschedule a retreat.
2) ACTS Missions – the San Antonio office, ACTSM Chapters, Board of Directors – does not need to be consulted in making a decision to cancel or reschedule a retreat.
3) The ACTS Retreat Director and ACTS Core Facilitator should consult with their Parish Pastor about an upcoming scheduled retreat and communicate the decision to the team, retreatants, retreat center, and parish community.
Every week, our staff is in prayer for upcoming retreats, team members, and retreatants. We will continue to unite with you in prayer for the retreats and for the health and well-being of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Relying on our Master Physician, Jesus Christ,
