With us our Blessed Mother wants to build a large part of the Church and a large part of the world.

J. Kentenich, To youth, 1933

...be a hero today. Heroism is required, nothing less; the total heroism of complete self-surrender.

J. Pozzobon

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son." Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother." And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

John 19:26-27

Young people are the hope of mission.

Pope Francis

SPM FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS

Why join?

Whereever Mary goes she wants to spread the Kingdom of God by bringing Christ into our lives. If we open our doors to her and to her graces, our dorms, our homes, and our hearts will become places of grace, places where God’s presence can be found.

Bringing this image is a gracious work of faith and of love. It also takes strength and courage from your youthful heart. You can transmit to others the love for God which you bear in your heart, just like Mary did in her lifetime. Are you willing to take this mission upon yourself? It depends on you!

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.
