Cornerstone is a 26-hour retreat which provides you with the opportunity to experience a sharing of faith and spiritual growth through personal talks, group sharing, prayer and the sacrament of reconciliation. The retreat is hosted at our parish center by parishioners who have enjoyed the fruit of past Cornerstone retreats. The weekend also allows time for personal reflection and prayer as well as one on one interaction.
What you can expect...
There's no big mystery to Cornerstone weekend. It is simply ordinary people sharing stories and experiences of trying to live the Gospel amidst the challenges of the modern world. It's a simple but moving experience.
The retreat is facilitated by a team of parishoners who have previously experienced Cornerstone. During the weekend, some members of the Cornerstone team will give talks which you will have the opportunity to discuss with others in attendance. It is a very casual atmosphere and you may share in the discussion as much or as little as you'd like - or not at all, if that is your preference.
There will also be a number of opportunities to examine your relationship with God, your family and others in your life. Most of all, it is an opportunity to think about those things that matter most to you, in an atmosphere that lends itself to reflection and contemplation.
