Bad Salzdetfurth, Germany:

Germany: 25th anniversary of the "Legacy Shrine" in the diocese of Hildesheim

On January 22, 1967, Father Kentenich asked the Schoenstatt mothers of the diocese of Hildesheim – one of the largest in territory in Germany, but with a marginal number of catholics – to work for a Shrine in their diocese. Faithful to this legacy of the Founder, the small Schoenstatt family of this diocese on September 15, 1977, saw the blessing of the Shrine in Bad Salzdetfurth near Hildesheim. From this shrine, the legacy of Jesus – "behold your mother"-, the Marian legacy of the diocese – the thousand year old rose tree at the cathedral as symbol -, and the legacy of the Founder – the covenant of love - , are to be lived and shared. On September 15, Bishop Joseph Homeyer, diocese of Hildesheim, will celebrate the festive Mass on behalf of the 25th anniversary of the Shrine.
