Schoenstatt Federation Priests
Unity in Diversity from the Beginning
The Schoenstatt Federation Priests is the first of the Schoenstatt communities. Its beginnings lie in the foundation of the Apostolic Federation in 1919, exactly 100 years later, on August 20,2019, its International Extension took place. Today it is represented by 260 priests in 15 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe.
Freedom and generosity are characteristic of the Federation of Priests. It is in this spirit that the Federation priest lives the evangelical counsels and his apostolate in the community of confreres.That is why the Federation of Priests has no superiors in the legal sense and is structured nationally and federally throughout the world.
The experience of an international community broadens our view of the diversity of the worldwide Church and of the priestly ministry. This experience is our encouragement and commitment to live and promote unity in diversity.
