ACTS Mini Retreat

Navigating Stormy Seas, Tuesday 10/27 @ 7:00pm

Adoration, Community, Theology and Service

Little Flower Parish has the distinction of being the first parish in the state of Ohio to introduce the ACTS parish based retreat. More than a simple retreat “program”, ACTS is designed to implement the New Evangelization in a way that transforms parishes into intentional disciples. Founded in San Antonio, TX in 1987, ACTS is now a national and international movement.

ACTS retreats are structured on the foundation of Adoration, Community, Theology and Service.

Parishioners come together to experience how their daily lives are fundamentally impacted by the Word and Sacraments of our faith. Through a weekend retreat (men’s and women’s) and through small faith communities, parishioners are led to live their faith more intentionally on a personal and community level.

Mini-Retreat Opportunity – Open to Everyone!

Living immersed in a secular culture is hard on our faith. We must be even more intentional now than in past ages about nourishing and protecting that faith.

The next Little Flower Mini-Retreat, sponsored by ACTS Council, entitled Navigating Stormy Seas, will help us do that. We will prayerfully reflect on the reality of just how confusing and painful it can be when God allows us to sail into the storm while he sleeps on a cushion in the back of our boat. 

The mini retreat – Navigating Stormy Seas

is taken from RC Spirituality, and will be offered both in person and virtually on October 27 from 7-9pm in the O’Grady Community Center {We WILL be in the gym!}. We will open in-person registration to 50 keeping in mind physical distancing concerns for seating and availability. Zoom registration is also available for those who would like to participate virtually {click on the link below}. There is no cost. 

Handouts for the retreat will be printed and available for those who attend in person.
