St. Lawrence Men's Cornerstone
Details About the Meetings
On the third Saturday morning of every month, all the men of St. Lawrence Parish are invited to
a monthly prayer session that's held in the Parish Center at 7:30AM. Coffee, bagels, and donuts are
provided and a specific topic is covered each month, which includes a prayer session, music, readings
and plenty of great discussion.
Although this monthly session is spearheaded by the men's Cornerstone Group, it is open to All men of the
parish. There is no need to have attended a Cornerstone Retreat to join in on these monthly meetings.
Attendance is highly encouraged.
Who Runs Each Meeting
Each month, a different member hosts the Prayer Session. That person picks the theme or topic they
want to cover, selects one song, and a relevent Bible Reading, and provides a list of discussion topic
questions to help start the open conversation. We are always looking for volunteers to pull together a prayer
session. It is a very fulfilling exercise if you've never done this before. There is plenty of help if you find
yourself stuck in finding a bible passage or a song to go along with your theme.

with pulling together your prayer session.
The person hosting a meeting is welcome to and even encouraged to deliver a mini witness talk about anything you
feel you would like to share with the team. We will always have the regular prayer session but
someone giving a witness always seems to make for a great meeting. You have an open slate at these sessions so
if there is something you want to get off your chest, out in the open, or simply want to hear from others in terms
of how they deal with certain things, this is a great forum for that.
