Cornerstone is simple, but its impact has been profound. Since the inception of Cornerstone, hundreds of men have enjoyed the experience at more than fifty parishes across the United States. In 2006 the retreat was brought to American Martyrs in Manhattan Beach with over 70 men attending. Since then, the Cornerstone retreat has expanded to several parishes across Southern California and is now in its third year at Visitation!

There is no mystery to the Men’s Cornerstone weekend. It’s simply a Gathering of Ordinary Men sharing their faith and life experiences.

The retreat is facilitated by a team of men who are passing along the gift of Cornerstone which they have previously experienced. During the weekend in a very casual atmosphere, some of these men will give a short talk followed by thoughtful reflection and discussion. You may share in the discussion as much or as little as you choose, or not at all, if that is your preference.


This year, the retreat is commencing – Friday, April 24th @ 6pm and Concluding – Saturday, April 25th @ 8pm

The retreat will begin Friday evening and will end on Saturday night. All meals (including dinner on Friday) and accommodations will be provided on the Visitation Parish campus. A letter confirming your registration and providing other details will be sent to you prior to the retreat.

• provides an outstanding opportunity to meet and interact with other men of the parish
• is a welcoming, non-judgmental environment
• allows for the opportunity to step out of the hustle of daily life to relax, pause and reflect

There will be a number of opportunities on the weekend to examine your relationship with God, your family and others in your life. Most of all, it is an opportunity to step out of our daily routine to think about those things that matter to you most, in an atmosphere that lends itself to reflection and renewal.

Registration coming soon. If you have any questions, please contact: Gerald Feldman: 323-706-6788
