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.
Schoenstatt NSW Family is especially excited by the year 2014 as we are leading closer to 100 years Celebration of the original Founding of Schoenstatt in Germany. There are many continued monthly Covenant events along with special weekend retreats and even day events that will offer an opportunity to gather together and spiritually connect with Our Blessed Mother and Father.
