2018 Womens Cornerstone Retreat
What is Cornerstone?
Cornerstone is a 26-hour retreat – an “experience that you have to experience” (Fr. John Barry). It is a spiritual movement within the Catholic Church that provides the opportunity to reflect, renew and strengthen your faith while meeting other women in our parish and ultimately forming individual faith-based communities.
What can you expect?
Cornerstone is an opportunity to step out of the hustle of daily life to pause and connect by sharing stories and life experiences. It is a welcoming, non-judgmental environment where you have the opportunity to examine your relationship with God, your family and others in your life. You can share in the discussion as much, or as little, as you choose. The retreat is hosted at our parish facilities by parishioners who have experienced the gift of past Cornerstone retreats and want to share this soulful treasure with others.
Who should attend?
Cornerstone isn’t for one type of woman. It is for working and non-working women, mothers and non-mothers, women from their 20’s to Grandmothers. It is for anyone who has been away from the Church and would like to reconnect. It is for anyone looking for a deeper connection to God, self, and other women within our church community. There is a place in Cornerstone for everyone.
What is the Gift of Cornerstone?
See Old Friends, Meet New Friends, Have Time to Reflect, Have Time to Share or Just Listen, Have Time to Pray & Very Tangibly Feel God’s Love & Support!
