Visit us

Schoenstatt daughter shrines are replicas of the Original Shrine in Schoenstatt, Germany. The three graces you receive in every Schoenstatt Shrine are: the grace of being at home in the heart of Mary, being transformed to be like Christ, and being sent out as an apostle to share the love of Jesus and Mary with others. Come and visit our Schoenstatt Shrines in Wisconsin.

Contributions to the Capital of Grace

We bring our gifts of love to the Blessed Mother, our contributions to the capital of grace, as a proof of our love for her. Through these gifts of love, we collaborate with the work of redemption, by offering our prayers and sacrifices. In this way, we, like Mary, help Christ save souls, and glorify the Father.

What I bear and endure,
what I say and what I dare,
what I think and what I cherish,
all the merits that I gain,
what I direct and what I conquer,
all my joys and all my sorrows:
what I am and what I have,
I give to you as a gift of love.
Use it so that the holy stream of graces
flowing richly from the shrine
may fill the souls of those
who have given their hearts to Schoenstatt
and gently lead there
all those whom you wish to choose in kindness.
Accept everything that our efforts may be fruitful
which we dedicate to the Trinity (Heavenwards).
