Movement of Washington, DC

Who We Are

The Apostolic Movement of Schoenstatt

is a Roman Catholic Marian Movement founded in Germany in 1914 by Father Joseph Kentenich. Fr. Kentenich saw the movement as being a means of spiritual renewal in the Catholic Church.


Our movement is involved in several 

apostolic actions, including missionary

 work, charity, education, and the Pilgrim Mother Campaign, spanning more than 110 countries in the world, with around 30 million members.

On October 18, 2014, 12,000 pilgrims traveled to the small city of Schoenstatt to celebrate the 100 years of the movement. Here is a documentary showing what words cannot express.
