The Sisters’ visitors and guests were starting their week with the monthly Covenant Sunday at the Schoenstatt Shrine. The August 24 celebration took on a special meaning marking the 100th anniversary of the Schoenstatt Movement.
Schoenstatt is a Catholic movement that strives to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the example and guidance of Mary, the mother of God.
It was started in 1914 in Germany by Fr. Joseph Kentenich who established a “Covenant of Love” with the Blessed Mother and a strong devotion to her.
Father Kentenich lived in Madison from 1952 to 1963. While he was there, the Founder Shrine was dedicated in its current location in 1953. There are 180 replicas of the shrine throughout the world today.
