Girls and Young Women

Schoenstatt Girls and Young Women (SGYW) is an independent catholic youth organisation which is part of the Schoenstatt International Movement. Its specific aim is to serve girls and young women who are seeking a closer relationship to Christ through Mary.

The Schoenstatt Girls’ Youth officially came into being in Germany on August 15th, 1931. As Schoenstatt Girls’ Youth, Catholic girls and young women all over the world strive to become little Marys so as to be a reflection of Mary for today’s world.

The Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary in Australia organise, through the assistance of young women and adult volunteers, camps, retreats, reflection days and group meetings aimed at girls and young women. This allows them to experience community building, spiritual growth, personal development, and fosters self-education, openness to the Church, involvement in parish as well as apostolic and charitable activities.

Living the Schoenstatt spirituality is a wonderful way for girls and young women to connect with other like-minded youth and young adults, to make their faith a truly meaningful part of their lives and draw them closer to Mary as our mother and model.
