The Blessing of the New Marian Shrine

On October 18, 2023, members of the Schoenstatt Tampa Bay community gathered at St. Cecelia Catholic Church in Clearwater for a Mass and blessing of the Schoenstatt Tampa Bay Wayside Shrine by Bishop Parkes. It was a day of joy and spiritual renewal, with 24 pilgrims consecrating themselves to the covenant of love.

During the ceremony, each participant pledged to deepen their relationship with Mary, the Mother Thrice Admirable (MTA) of Schoenstatt. This consecration allows full participation in the stream of life and graces, bringing individuals closer to their faith and the church community.
