Happy Covenant Day!

18th Impulse - August 2023

Dear Schoenstatt Mothers and friends,
Blessings for our Covenant Day in August which falls between the celebrations of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven (August 15) and Mary's Coronation as Queen of Heaven and Earth (August 22). Read about how Mary's Assumption continues as she returns to our Schoenstatt Shrines to be active in our lives through the covenant of love. Some of our young women participated in the international youth coronation of the Schoenstatt Girls and Young Women in Schoenstatt, Germany as a pre-program to World Youth Day. Our Mother Thrice Admirable is opening hearts of the youth!
