Helping our local Churches
     Cornerstone is a Movement in the Roman Catholic Church.  However, Cornerstone Alumni are not serving the needs of their own parishes, but in an ecumenical spirit, Cornerstone Alumni  do ministry with other churches and along side people of other religions.
     Trinity Episcopal Church in Ossining, NY is a good example.  Located in the center of town, Trinity Church houses the Food Pantry at which many Cornerstone men and women work.  A Cornerstone couple started Loaves and Fish, a program that serves a free meal to anyone who comes to Trinity Church auditorium on Saturday evening from 5 to 6 PM.  There are 6 teams that rotate cooking the meal that is served and another to take home.
      In August of 2008 Cornerstone Alumni approached Rev. Canon Charles P. Pridemore, Rector of Trinity Church asking for space to house the local clothing drive.

Father Charles gave over two rooms in the walk in basement of the Trinity Church Thrift Shop.  The rooms were pretty much gutted, new walls were put up and painted, a dirt floor in the rear room of the 125 year old building was covered with cement and painted.  Shelving was put up, tables brought in and a wonderful clothing redistribution center was created.
     St. Ann parish needed a wrought iron gate rebuilt; Our Lady of the Wayside needed a parking lot graveled, the building painted, a basement converted into a meeting room.  St. Augustine received maintenance work on the grounds; help cooking at their annual picnic; the revitalization of one of the oldest Knights of Columbus councils; assistance at the annual Italian Festival; help with Youth 200 retreat;
     Parishioners that used to show up on Sunday for Mass, are now active members of the Church and the community because of their Cornerstone experience.
