Our communities

The Schoenstatt Movement has several women's communities


Women who want to be Mary's reflection in the world

The Schoenstatt women's column is made up of various communities and branches. There are groups made up of young people, groups of single women, consecrated women and wives dedicated to married life. What do they all have in common? They want to be a new Mary today.

The pioneering woman in the Schoenstatt Work was Countess Gertrud von Bullion. She got to know Schoenstatt during the war, when she was serving as a nurse. Her consecration in the Federation of Women community opened the door for many others to follow.


Each branch and community has its own characteristics and mission. At the center of their aspirations is the desire to resemble the Blessed Mother, living in covenant with her, giving their lives for Christ.
