Men’s ACTS Retreat

Last Call for registering!

St. Catherine’s Men’s ACTS Retreat schedule for Nov. 8th thru Nov. 11th.

This is a “last minute” call to find more men who are needing a spiritual lift in their Catholic life and want to experience a communal experience unlike no other with fellow men. This is an opportunity to enrich your Catholic beliefs and strengthen your dedication and devotion to the faith and get a deeper understanding of where you are in your personal life as a man of God.

As you may or may not have known, St.Paul Catholic Church will be bringing ACTS to the men and women of our parish. We are seeking any husbands, brothers, brother-in-laws, or friends who are thinking of experiencing the retreat first hand, so that they can help bring that same experience to St.Paul. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity!

Don’t let the cost keep them from attending, as there is financial assistance available. Click on the link below to download the application.
