Cenacolo Community

Des jeunes de la communauté du Cenacolo rayonnants de la lumière de la résurrection, à Lourdes

There are three houses of the Cenacolo near the Sanctuary : a house for boys (in Lourdes) and two houses for girls (in Bartres and  Ade)

 

The Community welcomes anyone who desires to find joy again and the meaning of their own lives through a Christian journey in life, which is simple but true. The first condition for entering Community is feeling the need for God and for others, and to see oneself as a poor sinner.

The greater part of the young people who have come to the Community in these years asking for help come from situations of distress and profound sadness, often from the world of drug addiction; others ask to spend a period of time dedicating themselves totally to others, seeing in the style of life of the Community a path that can help them understand the will of God… in short, the reasons for coming can be different, but the clear proposal of rebirth is unique: encountering the risen Jesus through a life of sharing, prayer, work, sacrifice and true friendship.

A few words that you can read on the Cenacolo Community website... «To those who knock on the doors of the Community we propose a style of life that is simple, family-oriented, in the rediscovery of work seen as a gift, of true friendship and faith in the Word of God, made flesh in Jesus Christ dead and risen for us. We believe that the Christian life, in its fullness, is the true response to every anxiety of man, and that no one other than He who created man, God the Father, is able to reconstruct his heart led astray in a life without meaning. Our strength must come from Love, that Love which comes from the Cross of Christ and which gives life to the dead, freedom to prisoners, and sight to the blind. We are the first to be amazed by what the Lord is working in front of our eyes, and to thank Him because He makes us daily witnesses to His Resurrection, in the strength of which we see every day life return in the smiles of people who had lost all hope.  ».
