Connecting schoenstatters

“Culture of encounter is a covenant culture that creates solidarity.”

Pope Francis, Audience 25/10/2015

Through Fr. Kentenich’s communication style (narrating real stories) we serve the life of the International Schoenstatt Family and the Church by promoting bonds of solidarity

covenant culture

and offer this service as a witness

culture of encounter is a communication project — a free and independent initiative that follows the style Fr. Joseph Kentenich cultivated from the start with his MTA magazine.

From its beginning, has worked at the service of the international life of the Schoenstatt Family and does not aim to be the official organ of any organization or community.

This medium relies on a team of collaborators from five continents and those who have roles of responsibility include Schoenstatt members, experts, academics and professionals from the communications sector who, in their personal capacity, evaluate both the content and its communicational quality.
