Cornerstone Retreat

Cornerstone is a beautiful retreat experience, a time to revitalize your relationship with God, renew your own spirit and bond with other women of our parish through a combination of quiet reflection and prayer, and the sharing of one’s faith journey with others. Please consider joining us for this two-day retreat.

On Cornerstone Weekend, you will spend time in a relaxed atmosphere with other women of faith. During the weekend, some of our Cornerstone Team Members will give talks followed by discussion. It’s a very casual atmosphere and you may share in the discussion as much or as little as you like. Over the course of the weekend, you will form friendships, multiply your joys, divide your sorrows and lift up your heart. There will be a number of opportunities to examine your relationship with God, your family and others in your life. Most of all, it’s an opportunity to be inspired, revitalized and spiritually uplifted.

Cornerstone Weekend is Friday, November 16th from 6:30 PM to 10:30 PM and Saturday, November 17th from 8:30 AM and concludes with the 5:30 PM Mass in Church.

For questions or further information email us at or call us at 973-779-6200.

Exclusively for St. Philip Parishioners over the age of 21.
Participation is limited.
