St. Brigid Parish strives to offer retreats and Days of Reflection for families and individuals throughout the year.
We recognize the importance of taking time out of our busy schedules to be renewed in our relationship with the Lord. Parishioners are also encouraged to participate in the many other Retreat opportunities offered throughout our Archdiocese. Many of these are published under Adult Faith Formation “Around the Town” in the parish bulletin.
The ACTS community strives to assist members of the parish family to attain a deeper relationship with the Lord and with fellow parishioners through:
- Adoration: Prayer life
- Community: Love and caring for each other
- Theology: Study of the faith through scripture
- Service: To God and to each other
To achieve this goal, a three-day weekend experience is planned for both women and men.
Our next Women ACTS Retreats will be: August 31-September 3, 2017 (Oblate); and, September 13-16, 2018 (Oblate).
Our next Men ACTS Retreats will be: March 30-April 2, 2017 (Oblate); and, May 31-June 3, 2018 (Omega).
Like the Women’s Retreat, the men of the parish plan and assist in the implementation of the retreat. The Retreat allows participants to explore their relationship with Jesus and their roles as husbands, fathers and singles.
The Women’s Retreats generally allow interested women of the parish to plan and assist in the implementation of the retreat which encourages participants to explore their relationship with Jesus, and their roles as wives, mothers and singles.
