“Dilexit Ecclesiam – Beacon on the New Shore!”

50th Jubilee Year 1969-2019


Dear Schoenstatt Family and Friends,

We continue to receive the many graces flowing from this Golden Jubilee Year we celebrate.  With much joy, we give thanks for the life in and from the Cor Unum in Patre Shrine in July:  On the 18th Covenant Day - Covenant of Love ceremony for three from the Rosary Campaign, Vigil of all-night Eucharistic Adoration by the Mothers’ Branch (Spanish-speaking group), Guardian and Volunteer Appreciation Day with a special program, and the Third Sunday Covenant Mass with Family Day activities that closed with a barbecue family dinner.  Click below for photos:

In August, we look forward to the Mass and Covenant of Love Ceremony for a larger group from the Rosary Campaign that has completed the preparation classes.  On Covenant Day, 18th third Sunday at 3:30 PM, we come together as one family to be cor unum.  We are invited to participate in the Masses on two Marian Feast Days:  The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the 15th and the Queenship of Mary on the 22nd
