Tiziano Rossi who has been in the Cenacolo fraternity in Kendal for 4 years, the last 2 as Responsible (Leader), has left to open the first Cenacolo House in Asia, in the Philippines. Tiziano will first spend a little time with his family and then will prepare for the new mission at the Cenacolo House at Pagno near the Mother House in Saluzzo, Italy.
After 4 years many friends of the House had got to know Tiziano very well. His love and dedication to Cenacolo had touched many people; his fatherly care for the guys in the House was much appreciated, and so it was no surprise that many friends came for the farewell Mass and celebration. Some had travelled many miles to be there from places are far afield as Liverpool, Wales & Carlisle. Six priests concelebrated the Mass and Tiziano was prayed over at the end of the Mass in thanksgiving for the blessings he had received and for the blessing that he had been to so many during his time in Kendal.
At the end of the Mass Tiziano spoke of his reliance of the Holy Spirit in all things and his closeness to our Blessed Lady.
Following the Mass there was a general celebration with supper served by the Community. A cake had been baked by one of the friends and was enjoyed by all present.
We pray in thanksgiving for the gift of Tiziano to our fraternity in the UK and seek God’s blessing for his work in the Philippines. We also pray for Bruno as he takes over the role of Responsible.
