A place of peace for pilgrimage
The prayerful atmosphere of Schoenstatt Shrine in Bolton, just 25 minutes from the bustling city of Manchester, provided ample calm. "The chapel at Schoenstatt is beautiful both inside and out, and it's very easy to pray here", says Natalie, an artist of portraits and landscapes.
However, it wasn’t only the scenic surroundings and the elegant chapel that aided the prayer of this faithful group. Elizabeth, a retired teacher, believes that “going on a pilgrimage with friends helps me to pray more reverently. It’s so encouraging!”
Schoenstatt shrine is open for pilgrims throughout the year.
