The three Schoenstatt Shrines in Cape Town as well as the Shrines in Johannesburg and Scotland have chosen as places of pilgrimage during this Extraordinary jubilee year of Mercy. Crossing the threshold of the Shrine doors enables pilgrims to experience the Mercy of God. As with all Jubilees, a plenary indulgence is granted during the Holy Year of Mercy for those who meet the requirements.
