Dealing with Prickly People

Join us for a workshop that focus on coming to a peaceful place within ourselves when dealing with people with whom we are uncomfortable. We will explore factors that contribute to "prickly" behavior, working at interior peace, setting boundaries, avoiding placing blame or trying to "fix" others, ways to affirm our own goodness and the goodness of others and tools to appropriately address prickly behavior.

Papal Edition

Dear Cenacle Friends,

Attached is the "Papa Edition" of the Chapter Bulletin that has photos of our attending Pope Francis' General Audience this past Wed. He mentioned the Cenacle congregation by name (along with other groups) and we all cheered, waving our purple scarfs. We wore those to keep track of all of us (nearly 50 people).

I'm under the yellow straw hat, on the second page. Our Madagascar Sisters gave such a hat to each councilor. It came in very handy that day. We stood in the sun for over four hours! 

The Pope mentioned that he was praying not only for those at the audience (tens of thousands of people in St Peter's Square), but our families and loved ones. That includes you!

After the audience, we walked together through the Holy Door at St Peter's. I carried you, your families and your loved ones with me in prayer.


Sr. Mary Guido, rc
Director of Ministry

Hope this gets to someone.

I thought of the Cenacle as soon as I read the email below!!!

I thought someone might find a "creative way" to use the thoughts that are expressed. Perhaps in Advertise what happens "daily" at the Cenacle!

The Cenacle is my favorite Garden away from home!

Here I am nourished: physically, Spiritually and emotionally!

One of your sisters in Christ on the journey.

Plant Your Garden
