The student dormitory for couples in the Neupforte has given more than 60 senior women cookies and Easter greetings.Every year, the Student Home of the Student Institute of the KHG-Aachen organizes a social campaign in the Neupforte. This year, the students of the dormitory baked Easter pastries for seniors in need of care and distributed them without contact. Nearly 60 senior citizens throughout Aachen have received a package of pastries and a self-designed card. The action was organized in cooperation with the Social Service of Catholic Women e.V. The Neupforte is Germany’s oldest student dormitory for couples, is located near the town hall and offers 28 accommodation units for couples, some with children.

The Catholic University Community of Aachen is a place and a community where all people are welcome and should feel accepted there.We live church at the universities in the city of Aachen, celebrate divine services and organize blessing sores on various occasions.Lovers ask for God’s blessing for their relationship, in order to express their faith in the loving, accompanying God.“The blessing pledges to those who receive him the unwavering fidelity of God to life in his creation, and this fidelity is realized in this promise. Relationship is always an expression of life, no matter what gender the partners have. The blessing comes from God, not from the Church or from people who give the blessing.” (BDKJ Aachen, Diocesan Assembly January 2021) We want to continue to convey and celebrate this in our divine services and blessings.

A dialogue offer from Catholic university communities: We have to talk! – Finally, the content of the topics of the position paper of the KHG CologneThe conflict over the position paper “We want to remain credible” of the full-time employees of the KHG Cologne still employs many university communities, associations and student groups. The damage to university pastoral care is already enormous! In an open letter dated 15 January 2021, the authors again called for dialogue.Representativesof the Archdiocese of Cologne have publicly announced an open debate on several occasions since November 2020: “As a church, we are concerned with discussing the issues and, as a university community, to focus on students.” What is needed is an “open, lively and at the same time objective and balanced exchange of opinions”. Words must now also be followed by deeds. We have to talk! Higher education communities are places where the faith is freely and publicly critically considered. In the sense of the Second Vatican Council, such discourses can help to recognize the “signs of the times” that the whole Church is required to seek (cf. Gaudium et spes 4). A free and credible discourse among students and with the representatives of the KHG is impossible if it takes place in front of the threatening backdrop of sanctions. Even beyond Cologne, the actions of the diocese leadership lead to uncertainty and intimidation, especially among theology students with regard to their career and vocation perspective.Although it is in line with current labour and church law that the Archdiocese of Cologne can prohibit its employees from publishing the position paper, it is a very different question whether this kind of coexistence is the appropriate way forward. In our opinion, not! We long for a human-inclined, dialogue-capable, theologically savvy Church. We believe that it is absolutely necessary to have a substantive debate! If the leadership in the Archdiocese of Cologne is not ready for this, we have to take over! We will therefore be holding a series of digital events in the summer semester of 2021 in order to finally get into an open exchange on the content of the items in the position paper. To this end, we call on all other university communities to participate in the planning. We cordially invite the representatives of the Archdiocese of Cologne to the events. – 3 March 2021KSHG-Rat MünsterPermanent advice and team of KHG AachenCatholic University Centre QuellPunkt, AachenKHG BremenKSG BerlinKHG DresdenKSG ErfurtKhG Erlangen Municipal CouncilKHG FlensburgEKSG FreibergKHG GöttingenKSG HalleKSG IlmenauEHG & KHG LüneburgKHG NurembergKHG OsnabrückMunicipal council of the KHG Tübingen
