Greeting from Fr. Patricio Rodriguez

                                                       August 2018

Dear Schoenstatt family and friends,

August brings many new and exciting things to be lived and experienced here in our [Austin] Shrine. We slowly transition from the summer to a new school year,  and  look forward to the closing of the special “Father Kentenich Year”  in September. 

Bethlehem Cradle of Sanctity Shrine ,Austin , TX:                                                                                                                                      I invite you to mark your calendars to unite with the Movement worldwide in the closing of this special year on the week-end of Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16. On Saturday we will have a morning of reflection on Fr Kentenich starting at 9:30 am and ending with noon Mass.  Sunday, September 16 is Covenant Mass and  all are invited  to stay after Mass for a special lunch and sharing on Fr Kentenich.

As we prepare for the 50th anniversary commemorating his return to the house of the Father, I invite you to use this month of to continue learning about the person that was our Founder and Father,  while reflecting on the question, who is Fr Kentenich to me?

I wish you many blessings as we celebrate the Assumption and Queenship of our
Lady this month!

United in Christ and his Blessed Mother,

Fr. Patricio Rodriguez
Movement Director and Rector of the Shrine

Schoenstatt Shrine Support 

Thank you to all who so generously support the Shrine and join us in our mission.  The Shrine does not receive outside funding and counts on the generosity of Movement members and pilgrims for support  and allows us to grow.  The most helpful way to support the Shrine is to join the St. Joseph Circle and become a monthly supporter.
