She is the Great Missionary; She will work miracles.

School of Missionaries!

  • Go there where you are needed but not wanted.  Stay there until you are wanted but not needed.
  • Schoenstatt and the MTA do not need more people. More people need Schoenstatt and the MTA!
  • Start from the bottom,: proceed upwards!”   JK

What to do?

To fulfill this task, the missionaries may receive formation and necessary training.  Where a “Diocesan Coordinator Team” exists, this team is responsible for providing the  training. Otherwise, the missionaries should contact their State Coordinator or the main offices in Waukesha.

The missionaries make  their commitment for one year.  This commitment can be renewed as many times as the person wishes to do so.  This is done with a rite.

The missionaries take the image of the Pilgrim Mother to homes, families, schools, nursing homes, or wherever she may be received worthily. Those who receive the Pilgrim MTA make a commitment  to give the MTA a “place of honor,” to pray the rosary, or to say a prayer which  is special for the family.  If at all possible, they receive the Pilgrim MTA on the same days of each month, rotating the image every three days.

Reaching out to others with joy to proclaim the message of the Gospel is the challenge and duty given us, the laity, in this new time of evangelization for the Church.  Thankfully, we have our Blessed Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt and Queen of the Three Graces on the Move to help us achieve this challenge, this duty.



Workshops for missionaries of the apostolate of the Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother 

  • To become a missionary of the Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother, you should first watch the following 6 videos.
  • These videos will help walk through valuable information and hints necessary to complete your process of preparation and training for this apostolate.  
  • Once you have watched them, contact your local area coordinator to arrange a place where you will receive the image of the Pilgrim Mother.

At the end of each year the Pilgrim MTA Missionary renews the commitment. The form provided here allows the Missionary to renew the annual commitment. The Missionary should remain in contact with the local area or state coordinator.


The character of the missionary


Takes the image of the Mother Thrice Admirable of Schoenstatt


from the Shrine and in union with it


to many people, especially families


so that through the rosary, the Covenant of Love, the information and the Catechesis which is received,


the Blessed Mother can act as the Great Missionary


for the renewal of families, the Church and the world.
