    I recently made an ACTS retreat and found it rewarding although surprising in some respects. All my previous retreats were preached retreats for groups or private directed retreats led by priests. Priests said Masses, heard confessions and participated in some other ACTS retreat activities, and there were recognizable characteristics of Ignatian spirituality, especially in the retreat follow-up activity. The ACTS retreats were planned by lay leaders and almost all presentations were made by laymen. There were twice as many team members as retreatants.

    I have heard some surprisingly vigorous criticism before and after my retreat from people who seem shocked that ACTS is a lay organization. They seem to believe a lay-led retreat is not a "real" retreat. Please enlighten me.
