ACTS stands for Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service.


ACTS Core is the governing body for the ACTS Community and works to serve the ACTS Retreats offered in our Parish. The ACTS Core team works to support ACTS Retreats financially and logistically. One retreat per year is offered for each group: Men, Women, and Teens. Serving on the ACTS Core is a three year commitment. If you would like more information, please contact Brad Stach at 210-421-0579 or via email at
