Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are currently in 569 parishes worldwide; 6 countries, including the U.S.: Mexico, Panama, Honduras, South Africa, and Canada, representing 28 international dioceses; 27 U.S. states, representing 74 dioceses; all diocese in Texas and Louisiana; and 96 parishes in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. But not everyone has the ACTS Retreat in their home parish. Your donation allows us to mission to new parishes around the world while supporting parishes already active with ACTS Retreats.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to bring the ACTS Retreat to new parishes requesting it. We receive weekly requests. We currently have 20 chapters all around the world to help us manage and support the parishes with ACTS and the new parishes that are requesting ACTS. But because the demand is growing rapidly, we have to put parishes on a wait list. We want to say yes to every parish requesting ACTS and we want to help manage the parishes who currently have ACTS. Whether through our headquarters sending out a missioning team or through the chapter nearest the parish sending a missioning team.

We are also building a new website and database system that will help us connect worldwide with our chapters and our Brothers and Sisters. Another goal is to have online training for the ACTS Retreat in English, Spanish, Teen ACTS and Core training. By making the training, website, and database system available to everyone, we can support our chapters, form new chapters, support our parishes, and mission to new parishes.

Our Brother and Sisters in Christ are our strength. They have joined the mission. They have journeyed back to Jesus Christ. They have renewed and refreshed their love for Jesus Christ. They help us spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We ask that everyone who has gone on an ACTS Retreat join the mission. Support ACTS Missions. Spread the word!

We are blessed to be in 569 parishes worldwide. Our growth continues. We are blessed to have Brothers and Sisters in Christ who believe in the mission and who stay connected.

We ask for their support to meet our goals of spreading the ACTS Retreat by becoming a Missioner Ambassador.

We have refocused on our chapters to help us manage the ACTS Retreats in the parishes.

We are currently looking to form several new chapters to help us.
