Women with Responsibilities for Society and Church.
The Schoenstatt Academics are a circle of women, who are active in a variety of academic professions: they work in big industrial enterprises and in small firms, in medical institutions, in schools, but also in administration or in the ecclesiastical area. They live in different spheres of life, married or single, widowed or divorced. They feel united to each other by their task as Christians, in professions and society, to act in a responsible and independent way and to take decisions.
The professional every-day-life with its constraints of specialization and the challenges of a society of constantly increasing complexity based upon acceleration and optimizing of performance, endanger the holistic existence of the person of today. The academics are convinced that God still presents his covenant to our time. They find an answer by their endeavor to live this covenant with Mary, the mother of Christ. For them, this covenant has become a supporting foundation and everyday reality.
The circle of Schoenstatt academics regards as their special task cooperation in the spirit of the founder Father Kentenich for the building up of a new Christian culture and order of society:
- by a constructive dialogue with the trends of the time
- by an open reflection of what is happening in the world and church
- by their engagement in different projects in Burundi.
