Welcome to the ACTS Community of Lubbock website!
An ACTS retreat is designed to help participants enter into a new or deeper relationship with Christ and fellow laypersons. This is accomplished through Adoration and daily prayer, the call to Community as a member of the Body of Christ and Theology by encouraging the study of scripture and our Catholic Faith—all of which emphasize and encourage the virtue of Service to our Lord, our parishes and one another.
After the retreat, participants become members, brothers and sisters, in the ACTS community.
ACTS is a welcoming community of loving service. We pray you will become a part of it.
Dear ACTS Community,
As you plan your year end donations, please consider your own ACTS Community. As a newly commissioned Core, we recently discovered how greatly we are in need of funds.
The $180 retreat registration fee is designated for specific expenses including $150 per person to Mercy Center, tithe to ACTS mission ($10 per person to San Antonio), Coming Down The Mountain books, Fisherman bracelets, ACTS crosses, salvation bracelets, pamphlets and prayer cards, stipends for priests, and food for Agape.
Just for the last two retreats, many of the retreatants required scholarship funds totaling $4500. Our General funds have been depleted, and we are in arrears to Mercy Center for $550. We also have other expenses currently due that are necessary to run this NON-profit organization such as software updates, music license, and website fee.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 so we can pay ALL bills and have operating capital for future expenses and scholarships. We are asking for 1,000 TENS...that is 1,000 gifts of $10 each.
We are in DIRE need of help to replenish our accounts. Please go here and click the donation button at the bottom of the page today!
We thank you sincerely for all your prayers and support over 12 years in the Diocese of Lubbock.
