ACTS Women’s Weekend Retreat Planned

All of the women from Our Lady Queen of All Saints, Sacred Heart, and St. Joseph parishes (and the surrounding area) are invited to make the ACTS Weekend Retreat from Thursday evening Sept. 28 to Sunday morning Oct. 1.

ACTS stands for Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service. The retreat’s goals are to strengthen our faith and its application in our daily lives; to renew ourselves spiritually; and to build strong lasting friendships. The ACTS weekend retreat is presented by lay Catholic women, with the support of a Spiritual Director.

The cost of the retreat is $275. HOWEVER, financial difficulties should not prevent anyone from attending the retreat. If you have financial concerns, confidential arrangements can be made by contacting your pastor.

For more information, please contact Director Sarah Moser Fruge (337.288.1071); Co-director Aimee Summerlin (337.692.4970); or Co-director Dana Landry (337.945.1363).
