Cenacolo – Hope for the Addict
The Cenacolo community was founded by Sr. Elvira Petrozzi, an Italian nun, in 1983. For many years she had been concerned by the destruction she had seen among young people through drug abuse and she wanted to help them. There are now 47 Cenacolo communities world wide, with 1,500 people in them. A Cenacolo community was opened in Knock, Co. Mayo in 1999, when Sr. Elvira came to Knock to establish the house there. Davida, from Italy and Josh from America told their stories to Eileen Good.
