The Original Shrine

The small chapel dedicated to Mary, the Original Shrine, is the place of origin and the centre of the International Schoenstatt Movement.
At this place young people together with Father Joseph Kentenich sealed a covenant of love with Mary on October 18, 1914.

Since then a stream of graces goes out from here to the entire world.
Millions of people are unite spiritually at this place with God, with the Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt and with one another.
Here they experience that they are loved and accepted.

They are transformed into people who allow themselves in their everyday lives to be molded by God’s love and they help positively change the world.
