The cornerstone is a symbol for Christ that has Old Testament roots in Isaiah's prophecy: So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed."
We are ordinary men of Saint Anne's parish who join together to bring its many gifts to the men of the parish. Together we combine our faith, will, strength, talent, and determination to create a fulfilling experience for the benefit and spiritual enrichment of all. Cornerstone does this through the sharing of life stories and lessons, humor, music, good food, prayer and fellowship. We help participants find personal fulfillment through an exploration of their priorities, values, and aspirations.
Our goal is to lead our members to becoming more complete so they can strengthen and expand their relationships at home, work, and within the parish community. Our group seeks to assist others by all means possible on our collective journey toward a stronger, more faith-filled relationship with God.
