The Cornerstone Story...

 

     Cornerstone is no mystery. It is simply a group of ordinary laymen of all ages and backgrounds supporting each other in their endeavor to live the gospel amid the challenges that the modern world presents. It is a down-to-earth, inspiring encounter in which people socialize, laugh, learn and grow...and eat well ! 

     The idea of Cornerstone is simple, but its impact is profound! This year we are responding to requests from Alumni for an opportunity to reconnect with brothers from Cornerstone. St. Mary of the Assumption was one of the first parishes in Delaware to offer Cornerstone, and we are now leading the way with an Alumni event!
