The Schoenstatt Mothers Branch of North Texas pray and put together Baskets for Mary every year.
We start praying for single pregnant mothers on the feast of the Annunciation and end on Christmas Day. In this way we accompany Mary and journey with her for nine months.
Every year we have been doing this and helping Mater Filius since 2018.
This cause is very dear to our hearts.
On May 14, 2022 about 150 people gathered, at St Gabriel the Archangel in McKinney, to celebrate the Schoenstatt Family of North Texas May Crowning.
Among us were Father Pushpa Antonysamy, a Schoenstatt Father from Austin and moderator of the Family Branch.
We also had Sister Danielle Peters, a Schoenstatt Sister of Mary. She is the moderator of the Couples in Keller, TX.
Schoenstatt Sister of Mary, Heidi Infante, moderator of the Mothers Branch.
Much joy and light filled the atmosphere. Blessed Mother’s presence was very much felt in the form of peace and joy.
Father Pushpa helped with confessions at the parish, celebrated holy mass and the May Crowning for us.
How wonderful it is to celebrate as one Schoenstatt Family of North Texas.
Don’t forget to join us next year! We all received so many graces. We give thanks to our Lord, and our dear Mother Thrice Admirable Queen & Victress of Schoenstatt, for a beautiful and heavenly day.
The couple who crowned Blessed Mother were the parents of Elijiah Thomson, a seminarian who sealed the covenant of love in Schoenstatt, and got ordained in June 2022.
Do you know the land imbued with joy because the sun never sets there: where in possession of the eternal goods all hearts abide in tranquility; where heart and will are continually refreshed in the overflowing richness of God’s gifts; where love’s magic wand swiftly transforms all gloom into joy? This wonderland is known to me– It is the meadow radiantly lit by Tabor’s sun, where our Three times Admirable Lady reigns in the midst of her favorite children, loyally rewarding each gift of love with the manifestation of her glory and immeasurably abundant fruitfulness: It is my home, my Schoenstatt Land!
Do you know the land, the City of God, which the Lord has established for himself: where truthfulness governs and truth reigns and is triumphant; where deeds and omissions are measured according to the holy norms of justice; where love unites heart and mind and our Lord and Master holds the scepter? This wonderland is known to me– It is the meadow radiantly lit by Tabor’s sun, where our Three times Admirable Lady reigns in the midst of her favorite children, loyally rewarding each gift of love with the manifestation of her glory and immeasurably abundant fruitfulness: It is my home, my Schoenstatt Land!
On the week of January 11th Father Hugo Tagle visited four groups in the Dallas Diocesis that are part of the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign. These Missionaries are taking their mission of helping Mary reach as many homes as possible with her Pilgrim Shrine. It was wondering to see the love for Blessed Mother!
We give thanks for the fruitful week!
“SHE IS THE GREAT MISSIONARY, SHE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK MIRACLES”
On Thursday October 7th, 2021
the faithful gathered at St Gabriel the Archangel in Mckinney, to celebrate the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. We prayed all four mysteries in many languages and it was a night of tremendous miracles.
We ended the night with a candlelight procession around the Church and finished at the wayside shrine by renewing our consecration to Bl Mother.
- Many - miracles were reported. One person who suffered from sciatica pain in her back for months was instantly healed after the procession as we arrived at the Schoenstatt wayside shrine.
Another person burn her finger that day and was in excruciating pain. She was putting ice every 3 minutes on it to be able to tolerate the pain. By the time we started the Sorrowful mystery she was instantly healed, she reported.
A third person was praying since May for a job after graduating from Pharmaceutical school. She got a job a few days later.
Two people who carried Bl Mother in the procession claimed that at one point they were not carrying her, She was suspended in mid air. Glory to God!!
We give thanks to our dear MTA for outdoing herself in generosity and healing her children.
All are invited for next year’s feast of Our Lady of the Rosary at St Gabriel, at 7PM.
110 St Gabriel Way, McKinney
With heartfelt love we thank you Mother dear….
The Schoenstatt Mothers Branch of North Texas gathered on Saturday, September 18 to celebrate the Blessed Mother’s Birthday. Many attended the holy mass at 5:30 PM.
We give thanks that Sister M. Heidi Infante, moderator of the Mother Branch in Texas, was able to be with us for the special night.
A huge thanks to Sister Gloria Mauricio, Moderator of the Rosary Campaign and Mother Superior of the Schoenstatt Sister of Mary for her very special visit.
She gave us a very needed presentation on the rules and regulations of the Rosary Campaign.
I think all of heaven was celebrating with us on Covenant Day, the Birth of the one who is full of grace, our dear Blessed Mother.
We thank our dear Sister M. Heidi for her beautiful music and talk that she prepared with so much love.
We could feel an atmosphere of peace and joy. Something we all seek during these difficult times.
The Schoenstatt Mothers from St Gabriel worked very hard on making the night extra special with beautiful decorations, flowers, cake, punch juice and cookies for all to enjoy.
We ended the night with an honor guard procession, lead by the leaders. The mothers presented a flower and their intentions as they knelt down by the auxiliary shrine.
Sister M, Heidi took our intentions to the shrine with her to present to our MTA.
The night ended at the wayside shrine singing; “My Queen, My Mother.”
The Schoenstatt Mother Branch is looking forward to our next event, The Christ Child at St Gabriel the Archangel. On Saturday November 20, 2021 from 10AM to 12:30.
All Mothers and Married Women are invited!
The whole Schoenstatt Family gathered to celebrate 107 years of Covenant of Love and of Schoenstatt.
We had over 90 people who enjoyed holy Mass, a lunch and wonderful time together.
Father Pushpa gave us a beautiful talk about our motto and Sister M. Danielle Peters also shared her thoughts on the motto.
We get to keep our wonderful motto for another year and work with it in our groups.
Motto 2021/ 2022
“Lead from the Shrine with Trust in Divine Providence and Charity to All”
We give thanks to the Family Branch for hosting a beautiful day for all North Texas Schoensatters.
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.

“Take this picture of the Blessed Mother and give it a place of honor in your home. Then your home will become a little shrine in which the picture of grace will mediate many graces, create a holy family atmosphere, and form holy family members.”
-Father Joseph Kentenich,
Founder of Schoenstatt
