Schoenstatt Girls & Young Women

Welcome to the Schoenstatt Girls & Young Women!

The Schoenstatt Girls & Young Women is a branch of the International Schoenstatt Movement. Schoenstatt is a Catholic Marian movement with the goal bringing others closer to Christ through his most Blessed Mother. At our gatherings, we deepen our love for God and our Lady through an exchange of thoughts and life experiences between like-minded young women. The discussion material we will use during our meetings helps us get to know who Mary is on a more personal level, how we can imitate her virtues, and how and why we can dedicate our lives to Jesus through Mary—according to our Schoenstatt spirituality. For those who would like to learn a little more about the movement, check out this document here, and check out our international website here.

We have the option to form groups that meet periodically throughout the year and we also hold days of reflection, retreats and summer camps.

Schoenstatt offers activities for girls in elementary, middle and high school, and for young women in college and in the workforce (young professionals). Groups and events for singles, couples, families, men and mothers/married women give a home in our Schoenstatt Family for life! Reach out and we will happily direct you to the respective branches!
