May Crowning at All Saints Parish in Dallas

A beautiful May Crowning took place at All Saints Parish in Dallas on May 6, 2017.

Blessed Mother received two crowns at All Saints on this May Crowning Day. Mary was crowned after Holy Mass at her statue in the Church. Harriet North gave Mary a crown of fresh roses. Harriet is a long time Schoenstatter and was instrumental in building the Wayside Shrine at All Saints many years ago. 

After the crowning in the Church, Father Paul Nguyen invited everyone to process to the Wayside Shrine to crown our Lady of Schoenstatt. Father led a beautiful devotion and then we crowned our Lady "Queen of the All Saints Parish" with a gold jeweled crown. Patricia Bowlin, Diocesan Leader for the N.T. Mothers' Branch, offered the crown to Mary. Father Paul gave us a blessing.  We then prayed "My Queen, My Mother" Consecration to Mary and sang to Our Lady.  It was a day honoring our beautiful Queen with love, flowers, prayer and song!

March 2017 Spanish Retreat

On the weekend of March 3-5, 2017 twelve mother from North Texas travelled to the Confidential Shrine at Lamar for the annual Spanish retreat. It was one of largest retreat I have seen with about 46 beautiful ladies in attendance. We want to give thanks to Sister Heidi for showering us with her love, music and wisdom.  She gave us the most beautiful talk on the closing of the year of mercy and how to better live our motto as "Missionaries of Mary Building Covenant Culture"

Some of the music she played for us was so healing that we still listen to it and cry again. Especially one song that is titled:

"No one loves you, like I do"

Our Mother Thrice Admirable had so many gifts for her most favorite daughters like the presence of two of our Schoenstatt Fathers, Mary Rodriguez's beautiful talk, the commissioning of a missionary of the rosary campaign, and much more.

Father Patricio gave us a beautiful talk on our motto, "Missionaries of Mary Building Covenant Culture." Wow, he was on fire!   His encouraging words made us want to go into the world on zeal for our mission with the Spanish population where we live. We want to bloom where we are planted and be fruitful for our Schoenstatt kingdom of the father.

On Sunday we had the gift and presence of Fr Vega, who celebrated holy mass for us. It was such a healing and spirit filled weekend that we can't wait to return to the shrine and drink richly from our mother's fountain of love.

Mariel Arellano the great and zealous apostle took ten ladies, about five more people cancelled at the last minute.  Laura Schuckenbrock got to take two new ladies - one of them she met while going to confession and waiting in line for an hour and forty five minutes.  The confession line gave much fruit. As our dear father would say: "The cross blesses the world"

How wonderful it is to feel renewed and gain strength for our journey with the graces from the shrine.
 

We want to give thanks to all who make this retreat a reality and to all who attended.  

"Nothing Without You, Nothing Without Us"

Submitted by Laura Schuckenbrock

Installation Mass for New Bishop of the Diocese of Dallas

b2ap3_thumbnail_bishop2_20170210-235627_1.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_bishop.jpg 
 
Greetings dear Friends,
 
Just a quick hello to let you know I represented all of you today and prayed for you at the installation of our 8th Bishop of Dallas. It was a beautiful event. I will share his homily soon with you. 
 
I got to talk for a few minutes with His Eminence Cardinal Farrell and when I told him that I place him in Bl Mothers arms he had a nice surprise for me, or you could say, the MTA greeted me through him. He said: " I know Schoensatt- two of your Schoensatt Fathers are working with me in my new appointment in the Vatican. I was speechless.  Thank you MTA!! 
 
In attendance were: 
Apostolic Nuncio for the US: Bishop Pierre, Cardinal DiNardo, Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop Garcia Siller, etc, etc, 
 
United in the covenant of love,
Laura Schuckenbrock
