ACTS of NW Louisiana
at St. Joseph

ACTS, an acronym for Adoration, Community, Theology and Service, is a retreat ministry offering 3-day Catholic retreats for men and women, ages 18 and over, led by a priest and lay members of local parishes. The goal of an ACTS Retreat is to help you deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ, receive spiritual renewal, give new meaning to Sunday liturgy and your prayer life, and build lasting relationships with members of our community.
