How To Attend an ACTD Weekend

Attending a Tres Dias weekend begins with a desire to grow deeper in your current relationship with Christ.  In order to attend a weekend, you must be sponsored by an individual who has previously attended a three-day weekend experience (Tres Dias, Walk to Emmaus, Cursillo, etc).  Prayerful consideration by both you and your sponsor are an important first step in discerning God's will for your attendance.    Ideally, if you are a married candidate, the husband attends the men's weekend first and then the wife will attend the following weekend.


If you feel led to attend, you or your sponsor may complete the Candidate Registration Form below.  In addition, your sponsor will complete the Sponsor Information Packet. Once we receive both completed forms and deposit, we will add you to our weekend list and join you in praying for you and your personal weekend. In the event that the weekend candidate roster has already been filled, you will be notified that you have been added to our waiting list. 




Please only use the printed version of this form if you are not able to use the online version for some reason.  Using the online version will ensure we receive this information quicker and ensure that your candidates application is approved in a more timely manner.


What will I need to bring to the weekend?

Although we try to provide for most of your needs, there are a few items you will need to bring for your own comfort.  

  • Twin-size bedding, blankets or a sleeping bag and your favorite pillow
  • Towels, soap, and toiletries
  • Ear plugs are useful if you are sensitive to night noises
  • Casual, comfortable clothing such as jeans, t-shirts, athletic shoes, etc. 
  • Jacket or sweater (Even if the weather is "Texas Hot" you may need a jacket/sweater indoors)
  • Ladies note:  Purses are not necessary on the weekend. Please do not bring valuables and only a small amount of cash in the event you stop for dinner after the weekend on the way home.  

In the event you forget something, we most likely have everything that you may need with the exception of prescription medications.
