About Us

Our Journey, Schoenstatt, and Father Joseph Kentenich

Our journey began with a vision – a place where faith could flourish, hope could be nurtured, and the love of Mary could transform lives. This vision led to the establishment of Schoenstatt Tampa Bay, a vibrant community rooted in the teachings of the Schoenstatt Movement and guided by the inspirational life of our founder, Father Joseph Kentenich.

Schoenstatt is a movement of renewal within the Catholic Church that originated in Germany in 1914. The name “Schoenstatt” translates to “beautiful place,” which perfectly encapsulates the essence of our movement. Centered around a profound love for Mary, Schoenstatt encourages its followers to seal a covenant of love with her, seeking to mirror her faith, hope, and active love in their lives.
