The Mt Schoenstatt Spirituality Centre Mulgoa is just over an hour west of Sydney and is set on 50 acres of bushland and open fields. Offering both accommodation and conference facilities, Mt Schoenstatt is an ideal place for group retreats, reflection days, seminars and conferences. There is also a pilgrim centre/gift shop open to all.
The facilities are managed by the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary, and the centre also includes the Schoenstatt Shrine – a place of grace where the Blessed Mother is honoured as the “Mother Thrice Admirable Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt”. Father Kentenich, along with the Founding Generation invited the Blessed Mother to dwell in the Schoenstatt Shrine, and offered their striving for sanctification to the Mother Thrice Admirable so that She can intercede miracles of grace for all who pilgrim to the Shrine. The three specific Pilgrim Graces are: Home, Transformation and Witness (Apostolic Fruitfulness).
Since 1914, over 200 replicas have been built around the world. Each of these Shrines are connected with the grace of the Original Schoenstatt. We are fortunate to have three Shrines in Australia.
