Welcome to Schoenstatt a Catholic lay movement that strives to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the example and guidance of Mary, the Mother of God. Schoenstatt was founded in Germany in 1914, and now across the world there are over 200 Schoenstatt Shrines reaching all nationalities. In Australia across NSW, VIC and WA we have been blessed with 3 Schoenstatt Shrines providing you a natural and supernatural home. You will experience tranquility, peace and most of all our Lady of Schoenstatt, the Mother of God.
