ACTS Mission



Welcome to Sacred Heart ACTS Community 


The Sacred Heart ACTS mission is to help our brothers and sisters enter into a new or deeper relationship with our Lord and fellow parishioners. We do this by sponsoring and facilitating retreat weekends that foster and encourage these relationships. This is accomplished through Adoration and daily prayer, the call to Community in one's parish as a member of the Body of Christ, Theology in encouraging the study of scripture and our Catholic Faith and in Service to our Lord, our parish, one another and the community in which we live.

Christians’ of all faiths are welcome to attend.  

This retreat is NOT intended to convert Christian's to becoming Catholic. It's lead by lay Catholic Men and Women to help people of all faiths develop a deeper relationship with God and his son Jesus.

The retreat centre is located near Wasilla, Alaska.
