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.

“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.”
