If you have ever attended an ACTS Weekend Retreat, you realize how powerful and enduring the experience can be in discovering a new or deeper relationship with our Lord. It also enables you to find a kinship with other fellow Christians.

Under San Juan Capistrano, ACTS HOPE is unique because it provides a medical staff throughout the weekend to help ease any medical concerns.  The Retreat is also co-ed, thus allowing loved ones and friends to attend as well as anyone in need of spiritual healing.

Our hope is to provide people with an entire weekend of activities that highlight adoration, community, theology, and service while deepening their relationship with the Lord, the church, and the community.
...faith, HOPE, and love...Corinthians 13:13
The ACTS movement came about from the Cursillos
through the insprtion of the Holy Spirit, in the Archdiocese of
San Antonio, Texas.  ACTS began in 1987 at
Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Selma, Texas.

"I came in broken and now feel whole again. I now have a renewed faith in my religion and in myself."
