doration -- Prayer life
ommunity -- Love and caring for each other
heology -- Study of the faith through Scriptures
ervice -- To God and to each other
ACTS Amarillo hosts three-day weekend retreats which are patterned after the description of the early church, found in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:42-47). Although our primary purpose is to serve those in the Diocese of Amarillo, we welcome retreatants from all areas and walks of life.
The purpose of this weekend is to invite the retreatant to a new relationship with our Lord and each other through Adoration
and daily prayer; through Community
in one's parish as a member of the body of Christ; through Theology
, encouraging an intellectual and spiritual growth that gives fruits in our daily lives, and finally to encourage a spirit of Service
to our Lord, our parishes, and each other.
Retreatants experience God's love and joy through the weekend, and return to their faith communities with a deeper love for each other and an increased desire to become more involved in their parishes and community.
