Since 1998 a European Family Congress has taken place approximately every six years in Schoenstatt with families from every country in which there is a Schoenstatt Family Movement. In 2010 families from 18 countries in Europe with 14 different languages took part. The 2004 Congress gave rise to the “Europe Forum”, an annual meeting of delegates of the Schoenstatt Family Movement from the various countries in Europe.
