Mothers Branch of North Texas crowned our Mother Thrice Admirable at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Fort Worth

On Saturday, May 23rd, the Mothers Branch of North Texas crowned our Mother Thrice Admirable at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Fort Worth.  Led by pastor Father Óscar Sánchez-Olvera, CORC, our beloved MTA was crowned Queen of Physical and Spiritual Health before a mask-clad congregation of more than one hundred fifty, including parishioners and Schoenstatt children from both Dallas and Fort Worth dioceses.  The Spanish-English bilingual ceremony, celebrated after the Saturday Vigil Mass of the Ascension of Our Lord, was also transmitted via Zoom in order to include members of the Schoenstatt family currently in isolation due to the sanitary emergency.  Catholic faithful have reported watching it from faraway places in and out of the great state of Texas. 

Focus points during the ceremony, which besides the crowning and flower offerings to the MTA included our consecration to our Mother and Queen, were the praying of the powerful “Hold the Scepter in Your Hand” prayer and the reading of our Father and Founder’s invitation to theology students on his talk in Milwaukee on January 1st, 1963 to count on Mary’s powerful intercession before the throne of the Most-High Triune God.  His words resounded clearly as he urged all those present to pronounce our own clarifica te! and clarifica me!  in uttermost childlike confidence, counting on Mother and Queen’s decisive influence.  And so it happened.  We now pray with Father Kentenich, Let the world see your active hand and stand in admiration before you. (Heavenwards)  She is opening doors.

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary at St. Gabriel the Archangel in McKinney


On October 7th, 2019 at St Gabriel the Archangel in Mckinney, about 70 people got together to celebrate the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.  We prayed the Joyful, Sorrowful, Luminous and Glorious Mysteries of the Heavenwards Rosary. We ended the celebration with songs and a candlelight procession outside the church.  


Many people commented that it was a night of miracles and how they could feel the presence of our dear Mother Mary.  We could feel we were a family praying together. Wherever she is she gives us the feeling of family and home.  What a powerful night! We also prayed in multiple languages, Portuguese, Spanish and English.  Next year we will add more languages. 


We give thanks for all the faithful who showed up to celebrate this holy feast with great faith, love and joy.

60th Anniversary Of the Confidentia Shrine

On October 19, 2019 a group of 44 Pilgrims traveled to Lamar by bus to celebrate the 60th Anniversary Of the Confidentia Shrine.  This is the first Schoensatt bus pilgrimage to travel from North Texas to Lamar ever.  
It was amazing to see how it all came into place.  In the beginning it was only a dream, it took much perseverance and determination to make it happen.  
Bl Mother really wanted this to happen and she provided for us in every way.  It was a lesson on Confidence to trust everyday that the pilgrims would come and that little by little the money would also come $100 a time.  

There were so many miracles that we would have to make a book to describe each one. The other interesting thing was that the majority were all new people who had never been there. Many from St Michael Church in Mckinney.  It was a beautiful pilgrimage. 

We want to thank the many people who made donations and made this trip possible. 
It was organized by Laura Schuckenbrock with the help of Rose Tran. 
We especially want to thank our dear Mother Thrice Admirable who occupied the first seat on the bus and made all this possible.  She took perfect care of every detail. 

I also want to thank dear Father Kentenich, Joseph Engling and Sister Emilie for their heavenly help and intercession. 

Thank you also to Coachways who got us there safe and sound. 

Maybe we can keep it going now every year and this was the first annual pilgrimage to Lamar.

“JOYFUL APOSTLES LIVING THE COVENANT”

Pictures from the beautiful May Crowning at St Gabriel the Archangel in McKinney

This has been a jubilee gift from 2014 from our mother and Queen at St Gabriel.  Our dear Fr Don has been doing at faithfully and commissioning missionaries of the Rosary Campaign for now six years.  He does everything with so much love and joy.  This year because of a conflict he had he asked Fr Martin Castaneda from St Ann’s to do the mass and our Schoenstatt May Crowning.  
We had a beautiful holy mass and the whole parish was invited to celebrate.  After that we processed to the Annunciation Statue did our PRAYERS and Crowning and finish at the Schoensatt Wayside Shrine Of the Annunciation.   Father let us put our MTA picture inside for holy mass and asked us to crown the brand new statute outside.  It was suppose to be raining with big storms but we ask St Joseph to help us with the weather and it didn’t rain.  The whole parish enjoyed the event.  Little Elizabeth crowned Bl Mother, “ Queen of St Gabriel the Archangel.”


We had coffee and refreshments afterwards at St Marys room and a brief talk on Schoensatt spirituality.  It was a heavenly day for the whole parish.  Our Bl Mother of Schoensatt was very happy to have all her children gather around her. Thank you Father Don and Fr Martin for giving your yes to Bl Mother.
