BRAZIL, Belo Horizonte, Elfrida and Djalma Almeida. On October 20, the corner stone for the "Shrine of Freedom" will be laid in Belo Horizonte, Brazil; the dedication of the new Shrine is scheduled for May 17, 2003. The Holy Mass will be celebrated at 3:00 PM on the construction site, main celebrant is Cardinal Serafim of Belo Horizonte.

The program is simple, as the area is not yet prepared for major activities. But that does not matter what matters is that soon the Blessed Mother, the Mother Thrice Admirable of Schoenstatt, will grant a new 18 of October for Belo Horizonte.

The Schoenstatt Movement in Belo Horizonte began through the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign of the Pilgrim Mother thirteen years ago. Today it counts with Schoenstatt Boys' and Girls' Youth, Mothers' League, Family League, Professional Women, Marian Apostles. In the Archdiocese of Belo Horizonte, approximately 3,000 Pilgrim MTA's are visiting in the neighboring towns of the City of Belo Horizonte, and approximately 1,500 Pilgrim MTA's in the City.

The land for the future Shrine is near Confins, approximately 38 kilometers from the center of Belo Horizonte. A wayside shrine was erected there in 2001. In preparation for the corner stone laying, a small group of 10 12 persons made a pilgrimage to this land each fortnight, leaving at 5:30 in the morning. They pray the rosary on the way, another one and the novena by the wayside shrine, and on their way back, praying the third rosary, they complete all the mysteries of the rosary. Each third Sunday of the month, Holy Mass is celebrated on the land of the future Shrine with approximately 1,000 persons participating.
