“Lead from the Shrine, with Trust in Divine Providence and Charity to


May the hope, peace and joy of the Christ Child fill our hearts during this holy Christmas season and help us to recognize His presence in our daily lives.  We begin the New Year by celebrating the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.  In the Covenant of Love, we want to entrust ourselves and the year to her as our Mother and Educator.

Come celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord on January 3rd at 3:30 p.m.  On this day of the manifestation of God to the world (represented by the Magi) we want to respond with faith and adoration.  Let us prepare to offer our own spiritual gifts to our God and King – our gold of love, our frankincense of prayer, and our myrrh of sacrifice. 

Our gifts of love – “given to us, born for us of the pure Virgin” Isaiah 9:6, 7:14.  This passage (in Latin) is on the golden doors of the tabernacle in the shrine.    

Projects undertaken:  For the year of St. Joseph, our outdoor statue has been moved to a visible site in front of the shrine.  The gates were painted and look elegant. The path to the shrine is complete and road base was added to the drive into the grounds.  Through a generous donation, a much-needed golf cart has been acquired.  Thank you to all the donors and the volunteers for making these projects possible.  

We express gratitude to Fr. Francisco Rojas for his pastoral care and guidance in the past year and to Sr. M. Heidi, Sr. M. Mara and Sr. M. Danielle, our branch moderators.

Thank you to the diocesan committee members and the federation communities for their leadership service.   We give “special thanks” to the board of directors for their efforts with the improvements accomplished and the challenging, yet successful, bringing in of funds through donations for the operating expenses in 2020. We thank all our Schoenstatt family for their generosity and many hours of service offered to our Mother and Queen.   With confidence, we look forward to what God’s gifts will bring in the New Year for the Cor Unum in Patre Shrine and Mount Schoenstatt so that we may better serve the pilgrims and our community in our Mother’s place of grace.  Happy New Year!
