SCHOENSTATT

Pilgrim Mother

Our Pilgrim MTA’s task and mission from the Schoenstatt Shrine is to continually bring Jesus, her Son, anew to the world.  She wants to conquer the hearts of many who long to be close to God in their daily lives.  She brings the light and hope of the Lord into the lives of those who work with and receive her.  She intercedes the Three Graces of the Shrine to support religious and moral renewal of individuals, families, and family life.  Our Blessed Mother needs willing and capable instruments to help her achieve her task and mission.

The Apostolate

As part of the Apostolic Movement of Schoenstatt, this apostolate is one of the most effective ways of making a reality the new evangelization needed in our modern times.

Modalities of the Pilgrim MTA

Pilgrim MTA For Families

The visit of the Pilgrim Mother makes it possible to evangelize families, forming small communities within the larger parish community.

Pilgrim MTA For the Sick and Elderly

The Pilgrim MTA stays with each sick and Elderly person for several days. The missionary also accompanies their family, observing the spiritual or material needs of each one and referring them to the specific pastoral care of the parish to which they belong.

Pilgrim MTA For Children

Children can participate in the Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother Apostolate by forming groups under the supervision of an adult.

Pilgrim MTA For College Students

To be a missionary of the Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother for college students does not take much. You can share this gift with a few or many of your friends.

Pilgrim MTA For Prison

The Blessed Mother travels in the form of a pilgrim shrine to whoever welcomes her, no matter where they are. If you minister to people in prisons you can obtain a Pilgrim MTA for this purpose.

Auxiliary Pilgrim MTA

These images are destined for either a diocese, for a Diocesan Shrine or for a larger specific apostolate, under the responsability of a leader or a coordinator of a specific area.
