Brushstrokes of a Father: Volume 5

We’re proud to announce the publishing of the 5th volume of the Brushstrokes of a Father series: the volume dedicated to the Exile period (1952-1965). This series features testimonies about people’s experiences with Fr. Kentenich during each stage of the development of the Schoenstatt Movement. The first book of the series was published in 2009 by Fr. Jonathan Niehaus who later passed away in early 2011.

Since Fr. Jonathan left us outlines of the following books, the work has been taken up again by his siblings Fr. Mark Niehaus and Sr. Deanne Niehaus(!)

After lots of hard work, we’re happy to announce that the new title will be available for online purchase on September 8, 2020 on the website and will soon be available as ebook on Amazon. Please contact your local Schoenstatt book store to see if they have already ordered copies.

If you live outside of the United States and wish to order in bulk for Schoenstatters in your country please submit an order at or contact Fr. Jeff. Standard medium international boxes hold around 12 books and cost between $50 and $90 to ship; special pricing may be available to offset shipping charges.
