ACTS Missions (ACTSM)

We are a lay-led Catholic apostolate whose mission is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ among Catholic communities through ACTS Retreats. The intent and purpose of the Retreat is three-fold: offer the opportunity for a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, foster intentional discipleship, and build parish community. The headquarters for ACTS Missions is in San Antonio, TX. We also have ACTSM Chapters in 21 locations across the US and 1 in Mexico who support parishes and Cores in their region. Chapters are regional volunteers who focus on education and evangelization.

ACTS Missioners

We have many willing and dedicated volunteers who join mission retreat teams through our headquarters or Chapters. These teams take ACTS Retreats to new parishes in the US and countries around the world. With the help of our micro-funding campaign, ACTS Missioners, we provide training, support, and scholarships to enable mission teams to serve new parishes. 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.

As an ACTS Missioner…

We invite you to share the journey with others by:

  • Committing to a rosary and/or an hour of adoration each month for the work of ACTSM to spread the ACTS Retreat.
  • Encouraging at least one person per year to attend an ACTS Retreat in their parish.
  • Contributing a minimum of $5 monthly.

Missionary Award

Mik & Carol Stehling experienced the life-changing impact of ACTS retreats over 30 years ago. As ACTS alumni continue saying yes to generosity, the missionary spirit will continue reaching generations to come.

St. Therese the Little Flower

The Patron Saint of the ACTS Missioners

St. Therese the Little Flower is the patron saint of the ACTS Missioners because of her simple and direct commitment to the tasks and people that she encountered in her everyday life. As ACTS Missioners, we commit ourselves to simple prayer, extending an invitation for others to share in Christ’s love, and a small financial contribution to further the mission of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
