Fr. Cortese’s Regional Cenacle and Retreat Schedule

with Fr. Richard Cortese, National Director

Cenacle is the Latin word for “Upper Room” where the first apostles were gathered with Mary in Jerusalem, awaiting the First Pentecost.  In these Cenacles for our present times, the Blessed Mother again is inviting us to join her in prayer in preparation for the coming of the Holy Spirit in a Second Pentecost to renew the face of the earth.

The Cenacle consists of (1) Invocation to the Holy Spirit (2) Five decades of the Rosary (3) Prayer for the Holy Father (4) Reading from a message of Our Lady from the book, “To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons” (5) Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The celebration of Holy Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will follow.

All are invited to please come and join us to honor Our Lady.
