Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament:
St Margaret Mary Alocoque died in France in 1690 and was the primary person to spread the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. When her tomb was opened in July, 1830, two instantaneous cures took place. Her body rests under the altar in the chapel at Paray, and many favors have been obtained by those who have sought her intercession.
At St. Margaret Mary we continue the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus by celebrating Mass at 7pm on the
First Friday of the month and at noon on the First Saturday of every month. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament continues after Mass. Also, following the daily Mass on Wednesday, we honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus by keeping a Holy Hour.
Our patron saint, St. Margaret
Mary understood the value and joy of spending time with our
Lord at Mass and in adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament.
The Eucharistic Chapel is available to all those who wish to
visit and spend time with our Lord.
For 24/7 access to the Eucharistic Chapel please stop by the office to obtain a key card. There is $5 fee to help defray the cost of the access cards.
This Ministry is sometimes called
the Prayer Hotline. This group consists of a number of people
who will help you pray for a special need or intention.
As soon as a request is made, calls are then made to other
members of the group who offer prayers for your needs.

Schoenstatt is a Catholic movement that works to help renew the Church and society in the spirit of the Gospel, seeking to reconnect faith with daily life, especially through a deep love of Mary, the Mother of God. The Marian shrine is a place of grace, dedicated to Mary as the Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt. It is a covenant spirituality fostering a personal relationship with God, Mary and fellow man, making Christian discipleship more tangible in tune with God's will, and a spirituality seeking ways to form everyday life with practical steps forward in faith, hope and love. Schoenstatt is an international movement present on all continents with members from all vocations and walks of life who join to form a single Schoenstatt Family.
The Schoenstatt families also gather to pray the Rosary every Wednesday and the monthly covenant devotion is held at the SMM Marian shrine on the 18th of every month.
All are invited to visit the Bethlehem Cradle of Sanctity Shrine and discover the Schoenstatt Movement in Austin.
