Fr. James blessing the June 2017 ACTS Retreatants


Our Mission

Adult Formation and Evangelization ministry works to cultivate a parish community of joyful disciples by introducing all people to Jesus Christ through the sacraments, catechesis, and spiritual formation. 

If you’re looking for God through spiritual growth, theology and catechesis, or robust community life, start by getting a glimpse into our ministries at St. Louis.

A.C.T.S. Retreats create an environment and opportunity for women and men to focus on their relationship with the Lord, its application in their daily lives; to build purpose in their prayer life, and to cultivate friendship and fellowship among members of the community.  (Women’s and Men’s retreats are held separately.)  A.C.T.S is an acronym for Adoration, Community, Theology, Service.
