December 8, 1920 – 2020

from Working team of the women’s branches of Schoenstatt

On December 8, 2020, it will be 100 years
since the first women joined the Schoenstatt Movement.

To celebrate this occasion, a new website is to be launched as a sign of gratitude:

100 women from the various communities of women and families in Schoenstatt tell their story. Women of all ages, different walks of life and nations share something of what Schoenstatt has meant to them:

♥    The experiences that have formed them as women;

♥    encounters with God;

♥    the challenges they face as women today;

♥    and visions of changing the world for the better through their own lives.

100 stories in a 100-year history! Stories that illustrate what Father Kentenich Joseph Kentenich said at the 10th anniversary of the Women’s Movement:

“There was once a time when the public believed that history was made only by men. That is wrong. Women, too, have made history and today, more than ever before, they are meant to have a powerful influence on the destiny of the world. But we have to expect and work to ensure that woman does not lose her essence, that she seeks and finds her mission. (J. Kentenich December 7, 1930)
