How are ACTS retreats organized and run?

Each retreat is conducted by a dedicated team of men (for men’s retreats) or women (for women’s retreats) who have attended prior ACTS retreats.  They spend significant time prior to the retreat meeting weekly and preparing spiritually for it, as well as handling all the planning and logistics for the weekend.  Chosen by the retreat Director and working with one of the parish priests, the team organizes the retreat, conducts the retreat talks and activities and ministers to the needs of the retreatants during the retreat weekend.
