• 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 center is located near Wasilla, Alaska.

    The women's retreat is now scheduled for the April 11 - 14, 2024.  The men's retreat will be in the fall of 2024.

    For more information, please contact the retreat director or any of the Core Team members, whose contact information is found in the side bar.
