Experience Advent consciously

Action: A star rises - "Jesus, come!" In the chapel of the Pilgrim Church

During the corona pandemic, it became clear that the little chapel in the Pilgrim Church is crisis-proof. When business in the conference house runs on narrow gauges or even fails completely due to corona, the chapel always has an “open day” (8:00 am - 6:00 pm). People discover it as a kind of refuge in the uncertainty of these weeks, as one Bright spot in these dark days.
The Advent campaign "A star rises - Jesus, come!" Invites visitors to the Pilgrim Church Shrine from the 1st Sunday of Advent to take a little Advent stimulus with them from the wooden crib in the choir room: for themselves or as a small greeting for love People. Because this Advent 2020 is different, that can also mean: more essential.

In addition, you are invited to communicate personal concerns and names of people to the Pilgrim Church Sisters of Mary by telephone (02861/9230) or to bring them to the chapel yourself. Names and concerns are written on star notes and placed in the empty wooden crib. The Sisters of Mary are happy to pray for these people in a special way.
