Make it possible for the Cenacle Sisters to continue their ministries of retreats, spiritual direction, days of prayer, hospitality and more works at the heart of Cenacle spirituality. Help to ensure that all people, regardless of their financial situation, are able to benefit from Cenacle ministries and programs.

There are many ways you can join us in our purpose to "help persons address the meaning of life and find their way to the peace of God."

Houston Cenacle Recovery Fund

Donations for the on-going recovery efforts of the Cenacle Retreat House and the support of our Sisters are most welcomed. 



Contributions are gratefully accepted for a particular Cenacle retreat house, ministry, general needs, or for the elderly and infirm Sisters.

Cash Gifts

Gifts of cash (donations by check) are easy to do and can be used immediately for current needs. They can be given as a tribute or a memorial for a loved one.

Appreciated Assets

Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc. can be transferred to the Cenacle. Check with your financial advisors (attorney, accountant) to learn about tax advantages.

Life Insurance

Life insurance policies, whether paid-up or naming the Cenacle as beneficiary on a new policy, can be donated to the Cenacle. Check with your financial advisors for tax advantages.

Retirement Assets

Naming the Cenacle as the beneficiary of retirement assets (IRA's, 401K's, etc.) is another way to provide support for the Cenacle Sisters.


An excellent way to provide for the future of the Cenacle Sisters and leave a lasting legacy is to remember the Cenacle Sisters in your will. You can leave your entire estate, a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or the residue. Check with your attorney for the specific wording but always remember that our legal title must be used. If you would considering a bequest, please contact us for our correct legal title.

In-Kind Gifts

Perhaps you have some computers or furniture that you do not need any longer. Consider donating to the Cenacle. For more information about helping the Cenacle with your gift, simply call, e-mail, fax or write to us.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity. The Cenacle Sisters are remembering you and your intentions in prayer.
