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. 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.
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.
With over 180 dedicated members ranging in age from 18 to over 30, with diverse interests, skills, and backgrounds, Acies is the place to be if you're looking for true Catholic Action, friendship, and spiritual growth.
