What is Schoenstatt?
As a movement of moral and religious renewal in the Catholic Church, Schoenstatt works to help renew the Church and society in the spirit of the Gospel. It seeks to reconnect faith with daily life, especially through a deep love of Mary, the Mother of God.
As an international movement it is present on all continents and has members from all vocations and walks of life. It is aspiritual family whose many branches and communities join to form a single Schoenstatt Family.
As a place of grace, Schoenstatt has touched the lives of millions. The Schoenstatt Shrine is the movement’s spiritual home and center of life. The shrine is dedicated to Mary as the Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen , and Victress of Schoenstatt. In addition to the original Shrine in Germany, there are over 180 replica daughter shrines around the world (including four in Wisconsin) where people gather for prayer, renewal, and inspiration.
