ACTS Retreats

The ACTS movement came to birth from the Cursillo Movement through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, in the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Texas. ACTS began in 1987 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Selma, Texas, and was brought to St. Anne Parish in Beaumont in September 2001 by ACTS Missions.

ACTS is an acronym for Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service. It is these four themes that are the focus of activities for the three-day weekend lay retreats, patterned after the description of the early church in Acts of the Apostles 2:42-47, "They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to communal life, to the breaking of bread and to prayers... And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved."

Beaumont ACTS Chapter was formed in 2004 for the specific purpose of preading the ACTS retreats to more parishes in the Diocese of Beaumont. Beaumont ACTS Chapter is dedicated to this purpose and to ensure that the integrity of the ACTS Retreat is maintained.
