A few notes from Saturday Night's Festivities...
I would like to say a special word of thanks to Bishop Zurek for his support of ACTS in the Diocese of Amarillo. Bishop Zurek is on the Board of Directors for ACTS Missions, and not only does he help to guide us here in the diocese but he also helps to guide ACTS worldwide. Please pray for the Holy Spirit's continued guidance over ACTS Missions as we travel into the future. If you see the Bishop Zurek, please says thanks to him from ACTS!
ACTS President 2015-2016
From Monsignor Waldow:
Thank You for our wonderful 15th anniversary celebration on the 27th , a true celebration of the combined efforts of each one and all of us together that provided financial security for the next year of retreats. My love and prayers: Msgr. Waldow
From Sara Walsh:
To all of those so instrumental in organizing the grand affair on Saturday night, I know I speak for all in attendance, THANK YOU! The locale, food and entertaining were great, but the greatest thing of all was getting a chance for us all to recognize the invaluable role of our Msgr. Waldow. AND, having the opportunity to reunited with so many ACTS sisters and brothers that we haven't seen in a long time. It is just wonderful to see the fruits of the ACTS ministry and we are all so greatly blessed.
Final update on funds raised at the event:
After all expenses, enough was raised to cover the "Bridge the Gap" effort through October of 2017! Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket, those who came and helped set up and take down, those who came and enjoyed the evening with us. Just like ACTS retreats, it takes everyone to make it work! THANK YOU!
"I just want to give a big THANK YOU to all the members of CORE for all that you do. You work so very hard "behind the scenes" to make sure everything runs smoothly for all the "Send-Off's", "Candlelights", Closing Masses & Meals for ALL the retreats. I know that takes a lot of time & effort. So thank you for your generous contribution. And that goes for all the past members of CORE also. ACTS could not continue without the support and sacrifice of so many who know the real meaning of the "S" in ACTS. (Service)" From Myrna Brorman, ACTS Spiritual Companion
