Schoenstatt University Men was born as a consequence of the call made by our Founder, Fr. Joseph Kentenich, in Bellavista, Chile on May 31st, 1949 to generate the countercurrent of what he defined as “organic thinking”. This call developed originally in Chilean University men, from where, for many years, missionaries have gone out to different countries to spread this message of renewal. Missionaries now go to Austin, carrying with them the challenge of winning over the hearts of North America by means of the response and original contribution that Schoenstatt offers the world.
From their efforts was born the Schoenstatt University Men's Group which have to desire to transform hearts through Mary and her son Jesus.
