Schoenstatt Event Data Base

A growing number of users keep asking for information about Schoenstatt events in Original Schoenstatt and at the Schoenstatt Centers - retreats, celebrations, prayer services, covenant renewals, and various projects. PressOffice Schoenstatt intends to create a database for Schoenstatt events that will be open for all those who want to invite others, and make their planned activities known via Internet. It is planned to be a self-service database; for a one-time fee of 20,00 ($18.00) for the password, and an annual fee of 12,00 *($10.00), an unlimited number of events can be added to the calendar. Users can search the event calendar according to subjects, places, participants, etc. At the same time, such a calendar can show, day by day, the variety of Schoenstatt activities.

The calendar so far is being planned and prepared; whether it will become reality, for Germany, or on a wider international level, depends on the respective Schoenstatt communities' and Centers' participation.

Those who want to use and contribute to this calendar are invited to e-mail to PressOffice Schoenstatt by the end of August.

E-mail addresses at

Schoenstatt communities, Centers and others may use their own email address at Some Schoenstatt branches already experienced - for example with the initiative for the protection of human embryos - the 'corporate identity effect' of such an address. It's possible to get such an address (fee: 0,5 / $0.45 per month) as a POP3 address. Until August 31, this offer is restricted to official Schoenstatt communities, Centers, etc. If additional e-mail addresses are available after this time, then individuals will be invited to obtain an email address at for the same fee. If interested, send e-mail to PressOffice Schoenstatt for further details.
