Men's Cornerstone 

The Cornerstone Story...
Cornerstone is no mystery. It simply is 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 !
A team of Cornerstone veterans from the parish facilitates your retreat. Some of the team share their own life stories, after which  you have the opportunity to discuss them with fellow retreatants in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. You may take part in the dialogue as much or as little as you wish.
The idea of Cornerstone is simple, but its impact is profound! Since the inception of this weekend retreat, thousands of men  have experienced Cornerstone in over 50 parishes for more than 20 years. St. Mary of the Assumption was one of the first parishes in Delaware to offer Cornerstone, and the 2019 retreat will be our sixth installment, with many to follow.
