OUR LADY OF HOPE COMMUNITY FARM

Comunità Cenacolo America is part of the international Community of the Cenacle, founded in Italy in 1983 by a dynamic, vibrant faith-filled religious sister named Elvira Petrozzi. Mother Elvira felt certain that God was calling her to serve the poor of the modern world: disillusioned young men and women who live in desperation or hopelessness, convinced that their life has no meaning or value. Unable to find peace or joy in their lives, they seek to fill the emptiness with the illusory pleasures of the world, only to find themselves steeped in an intense interior isolation. Trusting unwaveringly in the direction of the Holy Spirit, Mother Elivra proclaims to all those who live in darkness that only Jesus Christ can heal and transform their shattered lives, changing despair into hope, sadness into joy, hatred into forgiveness, and death into life.
