Not Your Average Campus Chapel (Krems, Austria)

Since January 1st of this year, the Catholic university chaplain of Krems, Austria, has his seat at the Piarist Church of that city, which has become the center of the Campus Ministry. There are over 10,000 students in Krems, a great many international students among them; services are offered in various languages, including English, as well as Bible studies, discussions and spiritual direction. This past Sunday, the Campus Ministry celebrated a special thanksgiving Mass for the establishment of this new location; the Danube Private University choir sung Schubert’s Mass in G. The Mass was well attended and many young people were present. The chaplain, Fr Patrick Schöder, belongs to the Benedictine Abbey Göttweig, near Krems, and was appointed in 2014. The movement for liturgical renewal has reached Austria, and asks for our support in prayer!
