The movement is made up of 25 independent branches (not all yet exist in Australia). These share the same spirituality while catering to the many ways of life and levels of commitment possible in our church and society today. The Schoenstatt Shrine is the spiritual home for the Schoenstatt Movements and a place of grace and pilgrimage for all.
The Pilgrim Mother Apostolate involves groups of people who are willing to commit themselves to welcoming Our Lady of Schoenstatt into their home. Mary comes with her Son from the Schoenstatt Shrines into the homes of these people in the form of the picture of the Mother Thrice Admirable of Schoenstatt. The members of the group give the picture a place of honour in their homes or workplaces as the picture travels from member to member during the course of the month. They honour Mary by praying daily during the time of her visit. Many like to pray the rosary. They entrust their petitions to Mary’s care, experience her blessings and thank her for her intercession.
