|About||We're a Catholic Action Youth Group based in Saint Marys, KS!|
|Mission||To form Catholic Youth to serve God.|
The Latin word “acies” refers primarily to the front line of soldiers on a battlefield. The association seeks to form and educate its members in Catholic truths and principles that they might take up “the armor of God” (Eph.6.13), truly living as Christians so that their every act is infused with a Catholic spirit of Faith and Charity, for the greater glory of God and the salvation of their neighbors. Members find the natural expression of this spirit in active apostolate by which they labor for the welfare, edification, conversion and sanctification of their fellow men.
In order to reach these ends, sanctification, formation and action, Acies employs specific means. To foster sanctity, the group encourages prayer and the frequent use of the sacraments by each individual participant. To facilitate formation, spiritual conferences followed by discussions and debates are consistently hosted. Organized Catholic Action occurs by the efforts of the members to perform charitable activities within the community. The whole social atmosphere of Acies is geared to promote fraternal charity and cooperation among its members, united in common goals, dedicated to the service of God and neighbor.
This website serves an an internal point of connection for Acies and provides informative updates of Catholic Action nationwide.
