Moms in Touch


Moms in Touch is a small prayer group that meets every Monday from 8:15 - 9:00 a.m. during the school year in the Parish Library.  This group prays for the St. Peter parish community, including all teachers, students, parents and all of their intentions.
 
It typically starts with a short reading consisting of either prayer or scripture, and then pray from the heart.  It truly is a beautiful way to start each week.  It is a great reminder of the presence of our Lord based on Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”

ACTS Retreat for Woman

An ACTS retreat is a three day and three night Catholic lay retreat presented by fellow parishioners. The retreat begins on Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday at a Mass celebrated with the parish community. Retreats for women and retreats for men are given separately. Talks and activities during the retreat focus on Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service, from which the ACTS acronym is derived. Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are the guides for the retreats. The retreat facilitates the attainment of a new or deeper relationship with the Lord through:

Adoration - the call by, acceptance of, and response to God
Community - the love and caring of each other
Theology - the study of God through scripture and the Catholic Faith
Service - to God and his people.

Each retreat is conducted by a retreat "team" composed of 20-30 individuals who have attended prior ACTS retreats. The team organizes the retreat, conducts the retreat talks and activities, and ministers to the needs of the retreatants during the retreat weekend.

The next ACTS Retreat for Women will be held on September 6-9, 2012. For more information about this retreat, please contact Linda Doyle at
