Dear parents, friends, and “extended family” of Comunità Cenacolo,
We wish to inform you that we have decided to confirm the dates for the Festival of Life 2020 as Thursday July 16th to Sunday the 19th.
However, given the general uncertainty caused by Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and our inability to know what the situation will be like in July; including the current bans on travel and large gatherings; for the moment we think it best that the physical presence at the Festival this year will be only for the men, women and members who live in our communities. Their participation will be to the extent possible indicated by regulations.
If, leading up to the Festival, there should be any significant changes and/or news of possible openings, we will notify you as soon as possible.
We know that for many of you it will be a great sacrifice not being able to “physically” come to the Festival. This is always a long-awaited and greatly desired moment…it will be a great sacrifice for us as well, not being able to see all of you. However, we won’t allow this to stop us, the Festival of Life will come to you!
We are already working on a way for all of you to participate from home in our four days of prayer, praise, testimony, catechism, song and dance. We wan each one of you to feel loved by God and by us. We will try our best to offer the possibility of of having you present on the hill of Saluzzo with us, in a communion of heart and faith.
We are certain of your understanding and grateful for your closeness during this time. We ask the Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of Cenacolo, to bring you all our best and to continue to protect each of you under Her mantle.
