On October 18, 2016, the monthly remembrance of Fr. Kentenich’s First Founding Document on October 18, 1914, Southern Illinois members of the Schoenstatt Movement crowned its Pilgrim MTAs at Mother of Perpetual Help in Maryville, Illinois. The crowned Pilgrim MTAs will visit many homes to augment the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign and begin the move for Our Mother Thrice Admirable (MTA) as Queen of the Three Graces on the Move from just a visit to a permanent home shrine!
Fr. Joseph Havrilka, pastor of Mother of Perpetual Help, officiated and Sr. Marie Day from the Schoenstatt National Center in Waukesha, WI provided a reflection. How blessed we are in Southern Illinois to have Our Mother Thrice Admirable visiting members of our homes with the crowned Pilgrim MTAs! May Our Queen of the Three Graces on the Move help these visits grow into Covenants of Love and Home Shrines!
