From the Mount Schoenstatt website.

As a place of grace, the shrine has the specific mission to be a spiritual home, place of inner renewal, and sending out for many. In communion with the Blessed Trinity and Mary, we strive to build a network of living shrines for America. With a great mission of renewal for Church and world, Schoenstatt works to rekindle the world in Christ through Mary.

The international Schoenstatt Movement was founded on October 18, 1914, by Father Joseph Kentenich in Schoenstatt near Vallendar on the Rhine in West Central Germany. The word Schoenstatt means “beautiful place.”

This and all Schoestatt Shrines provide a place of tranquility, peace and most of all our Mother Thrice Admirable who leads us to God. She offers the grace of a home in her Mother heart for everyone who seeks answers in the confusion and uncertainty of life.

Visitors are welcome to come and walk the grounds, enjoy the Mary garden and visit the Shrine. Mount Schoenstatt also includes a Religious Center that is used for workshops events for the Movement and local parish activities. In addition, there is a Religious gift shop for visitors. The “Cor Unum in Patre” is open daily.
