Women's Cornerstone

Cornerstone is a 26 hour weekend retreat for the women of St. Lawrence O’Toole and Sacred Heart Parishes. The goal of Cornerstone is for each candidate to make Christ the cornerstone of their Catholic life.

The retreat presents an opportunity for spiritual development as each candidate listens to the life story of others while reflecting on their own life. The Cornerstone team and candidates form Christian relationships that extend into parish life and other ministries.

Cornerstone is held at St. Lawrence with sleeping accommodations and all meals provided.

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him –
the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord – and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears.    Isaiah 11:2,3

Mary, queen of the angels we ask you to guide us on this 2017 Cornerstone journey. Throughout your guidance may we become better mothers, wives, sister, aunts, daughters and grow spiritually closer to Jesus your only Son. We ask that you show us your human side, that we can understand how to be better women, while being tested by temptations or the devil himself. Show us your joy, love and compassion for all people as well as your ability to deal with disappointments, suffering and death. For you Mary, have been through it all. Please ask your son Jesus to bless our journey this year, as well as whisper into the hearts of the 2016 Candidates. Finally Mary, we pray for the current, past and future Cornerstone women that we become the cornerstone you ask us to be and fulfill your work here on earth. Amen.
