Teen ACTS brings together high school students for a weekend of fun and faith modeled after adult ACTS retreats. The TACTS lineup provides activities -- praise, sacraments, Scripture, and more -- allowing students in grades 9-12 to encounter God more authentically. While enriching their faith, the participants also build friendships and connections within the parish. The Holy Spirit channels the unique energy and creativity of teen-agers for a three-day spiritual adventure. Adult mentors serve with the teen team volunteers to present events both reverent and exuberant.
Thirty retreatants attended St. Bernard’s Teen ACTS #5 at Camp Loughridge in February 2018. Thank you to the team members – a crew of teens and adults -- who served as generous and joyful evangelists. They reported this: “It was an amazing weekend led by the Holy Spirit.” May God continue to bless these teens as they take fresh spiritual energy back to our parish and to their homes, schools and friends. We pray they may model the faith, courage and discipleship shown by the retreat patron, Blessed Stanley Rother. "The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” – Mark 1:15
