Giving Tuesday
After the Thanksgiving pleasure and, possibly, some weekend shopping activity you might want to consider participating in the newest "day" of the Holiday season.  Giving Tuesday is a nationwide day focused on the needs of non-profits. The Cenacle Sisters would like you to consider donating to their ministry here in Chicago.  The Sisters serve thousands of people from all backgrounds seeking a quiet space for reflection, spiritual direction , prayer enrollments, a place for meetings and conferences, and programs designed to nourish the soul and mind.  Go to our on-line donation page and consider making a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one.

The Sisters appreciate the prayers and gifts of their friends and donors.  Be assured that you a remembered in prayer everyday at Eucharist.

All Good!

Busy is good; quiet is good,too. We’ve had a wonderful fall at the Cenacle with a full schedule of groups for retreats and conferences. From September through November we have been sprinting toward the end of the year, keeping up with a steady flow of guests coming and going.  We love it!  In a few weeks then, as Christmas approaches, the pace slows down dramatically.  It’s time to catch up on some deep cleaning (and catch our breath) and to complete a major project of renovating our bathrooms.  They will have a fresh, bright new look for the new year. Then, we’ll see off 2014 with the annual New Year’s Eve Retreat and launch into the new year on January 1 hosting a three day meditation retreat. Quiet is good; busy is good, too.
