What is an ACTS Retreat?
An ACTS retreat is a three day, three night Catholic lay retreat presented by fellow parishioners who have attended an ACTS Retreat. The retreat begins Thursday evening and ending Sunday at San Clemente 12 Noon Mass followed by a reception and fellowship celebration with the Retreatant's family at the parish hall.
In their commitment to spread the Gospel Message, San Clemente offers retreats annually for men in the Spring and for women in the Fall. Activities during the retreat focus on love of Christ through Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service, from which the ACTS acronym is derived.
Why attend an ACTS retreat?
The weekend can be a powerful and enduring personal conversion experience. Activities conducted during the weekend give Retreatants a better understanding of the significance and importance of prayer, Liturgy, the Sacraments, Scripture, community, service and healing. It is a powerful community building experience for San Clemente Parish. The goal of the retreat is to deepen one’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.
Who can attend an ACTS retreat?
Our ACTS adult retreats are open to anyone over 18 years of age. While ACTS is a Catholic retreat, it is open to other Christians willing to learn more about Christ and our Roman Catholic faith.
Where are the retreats held?
San Clemente ACTS Retreats are held at the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Why does ACTS have "secrets"?
There are NO secrets, simply surprises that maintain the awe for the unique “gift” the Holy Spirit has wrapped up specifically for each individual Retreatant.

"They devoted themselves to the teachings of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of bread and to prayers. Awe came upon everyone and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one's needs. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals in Exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved." — Acts 2:42-47
