Dear Cenacle Friends,

As Cenacle Sisters, we draw our inspiration from Mary, the Mother of Jesus, surrendering herself to the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the first Cenacle. At times, such stirrings of the Spirit reveal the will of God for us in ways that are very specific and concrete, although not always easy.


After much prayer, dialogue and work with consultants, the Cenacle Sisters of the North American Province acknowledge, with deep sorrow, that we do not have the sister personnel and energy to continue our ministry at the Ronkonkoma Cenacle. Consequently, we realize that we need to bring our ministry as we have known it to a close.


We plan to honor, as much as possible, already scheduled retreat and hospitality programs for this apostolic year, which ends in August, 2020. During this time, we will be available for spiritual direction, supervision and individually directed/private retreats as we are able; our Prayer Enrollment Ministry will also continue. However, we are not scheduling additional day, overnight or weekend programs. We will be engaging in dialogue and discernment regarding how our sisters who remain on Long Island will minister.


It is with both heavy and grateful hearts that we thank our Good God for your faithful support, your generous service and your deep embrace of our Cenacle mission. As we all journey together into this new time, let us hold one another in loving support.


Your Cenacle Sisters,
