Fat Tuesday??

What is Fat Tuesday?

As the Church anticipates the Season of Lent, the evening before Ash Wednesday is called "Fat Tuesday" or Shrove Tuesday. Rich foods are consumed as the faithful prepare for time of fasting, abstinence, confession and penance.

Customs and practices arose for Fat Tuesday where people would empty their pantries of many items restricted during Lent.

One of the terms often used with Mardi Gras is "carnival." We picture huge public celebrations or parades. Anyone who visits one of the big carnivals held on this day usually bring back stories of self-indulgence and hedonism that make most people blush.

Ironically, carnival comes from the Latin "carne vale" which means "farewell to meat" or "farewell to flesh" indicating the end to certain pleasures has come.

The Houston Cenacle Sisters are pleased to share that


Sr. Pamela Falkowski, rc

 has been appointed by Sr. Rose Hoover, rc, Cenacle Provincial, to become the new Local Leader at the Cenacle Retreat House.

Sr. Pam Falkowski's most recent mission has been in Ronkonkoma, NY in service to the North American Province by animating the inception and evolution of Thérèse's Well, an intentional (local and cyber) community that strives to live more deeply from our Cenacle roots.

             Pam is an experienced spiritual director, retreat facilitator, teacher, musician, artist, certified leader of InterPlay®, and Trager® practitioner.  She believes that creativity is a powerful source of our healing and transformation; and, that our bodies hold the wisdom that can inform good discernment and healthy choices.  Consequently, she uses an interdisciplinary approach to her ministry incorporating the arts, body, and movement.

             Pam holds a D.Min. degree from the Pacific School of Religion, Berkeley, CA, and a B.A. from DePaul University, Chicago.

 Sr. Pamela will arrive at the Houston Cenacle in late January 2017 to become the Local Leader.
