  • Celebrating Our John's 91st birthday

    Happy Birthday to our John. He is 91 years young today. Our oldest ever client. He has been coming into Cornerstone for a few years, has the most amazing voice, still works as an extra in loads of TV series and loves to complete crosswords. He loves the outdoors and comes on our occasional walks, he is so fit. Until recently he worked with meals on wheels.  He loves to come into Cornerstone as at one point in his life he needed support and was lonely and depressed. John also loves to come to our prayer meetings every Monday, often sings Solo with his warm dulcet tones, He always remarks how coming to the prayer lifts him up for the rest of the week. God Bless you John, enjoy your special day, we all love you.

    Thank you to Irish Abroad 2016 for a fabulous fundraising spectacular at the Manchester Hilton on Friday 25th November to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Cornerstone's work with homeless people. The story began 25 years ago in a small port-a-cabin and today serves up to 200 people per day with a range of professional services that includes emergency and 4 half-way-houses for accommodation. Lawrence Bettany, manager of Caritas Community Services shared the fundraising platform with Francis House Children's Hospice. Lawrence introduced Musaab, a refugee from the Sudan who has been granted asylum in the UK and who is now housed through the Cornerstone services.

  • Visit to Rome Continued...

    Thanks to all that made this journey possible! Each one of us on our pilgrimage came back changed. Going with these people sharing the experience with them, agreeing we would spoil these nine men as we believe they would never have had such attention in their lives. We all benefited from it. Blessings all the time. We were all mostly weary most of the time as finding the places each day by foot was quite difficult, but we were all full of cheer and joy. Watching these men looking after each other and us was so inspiring it truly was once in a lifetime.
