Women's Cornerstone

Womens Cornerstone Chapel3

Jesus said to them, “Did you ever read in the Scriptures:
“The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief
by the Lord has this been done,
and it is wonderful in our eyes’?”


Cornerstone is a 27-hour extraordinary experience that provides an opportunity for women to renew and strengthen their faith while growing in their experiences with other women of the parish. It is a simple gathering of ordinary women, a chance to step back from the daily routine, recharge and think about the things that matter most. It’s an opportunity for quiet reflection, spiritual growth, examining your relationship with God and sharing life experiences in a friendly, non-judgmental environment. All are welcome. Confidentiality is respected. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you will leave inspired and uplifted.

“When I first heard about Cornerstone, I prayed, asking God to show me a path. I entered into the 27 hours with an open heart and mind and left with a blessed experience and wonderful feeling. I walked away with new friends who I now call my sisters. They are there for support in times of need, to chat, or share a laugh. I’m so glad I made that choice!”
— Michele P.

“The weekend was truly one like no other. In 27 hours I laughed, was speechless and became a little teary-eyed as I clearly saw God’s true spirit in others. I left the weekend wanting to gather up all my loved ones and invite them to the next weekend. Every mom, wife, sister, daughter, niece and friend deserves to have a beautiful opportunity like this to relax and renew.”
