What did you do after your Christmas lunch? The guys from the Cenacolo Community who had lunch with the priests at St. Clare's spent time in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and recited the Joyful mysteries of the rosary.
Many people through kindness had contributed 'goodies' for the lads to enjoy a festive Christmas lunch together and enjoy it they did. Fr Chris was the cook and Fr Darren the kitchen porter beavering away serving, washing up endless pots and returning the dining room to normal after the meal for fifteen.
The lads from Cenacolo are all trying to change their lives and opt to live in community and enrol in what the foundress of the community calls, 'a school of life.' Many of these guys have been troubled with addiction to drugs or alcohol but through prayer, work and friendship they are learning to change.
After lunch they retired to the church, the Blessed Sacrament was exposed and they entered into a time of prayer for others and thanksgiving for the Lord has done for them.
