"From the moment I stepped out of my car, I felt immersed in the peace that is the Cenacle. I wasn't sure what I was looking for but now I understand it was just being able to set aside my daily baggage and just be. I expected peace and quiet but didn't realize how encompassing it would be for body, mind and spirit, the Spiritual Direction, Massage, Art Cove, Liturgical Services, the food, and the great hospitality."
