Cornerstones

Cornerstones is a group of couples and singles over fifty. We usually host a time of fellowship, dinner, and a program on the first Friday of the month, September to June, at 6:00 p.m. in the Gratz Center. All are invited to attend.

Friday, February 1, 2019

Appetizers and Dinner
5:30 p.m.
(a half hour earlier than usual)
Borwell Dining Room
Prepaid reservations are required; seating is limited to 72

Presentation by Father Michael Pfleger
7:00 p.m.
Buchanan Chapel
All are welcome!

During Black History Month, join us as Father Michael Pfleger discusses his work at Saint Sabina and his perspective on our progress—or lack thereof—in the many areas of social justice to he devotes so much passion and energy. There will be plenty of time for Q and A.

Pastor at Saint Sabina since 1981, Father Pfleger is a powerful voice for social justice in Chicago and beyond, tackling issues related to employment, gun violence, gangs, and access to health, education, and social services for his congregants and the community at large.

Our evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. with appetizers, followed by dinner, which will end no later than 6:45 p.m., when we will adjourn to Buchanan Chapel for the presentation.

Dinner is limited to 72 attendees, and we therefore encourage early reservations. We are not able to accept late reservations or walk-ins for dinner. If you cannot attend the dinner, all are welcome to attend Father Pfleger’s presentation in Buchanan Chapel.

Prepaid reservations for the dinner ($25 per person) are required and must be made no later than Wednesday, January 30 online (preferred) or by contacting Anne Ellis.
