Matthias Fritz

Accompaniment and advice on questions of life and faith is offered by university chaplain Matthias Fritz by appointment.

The group comes with at least. three interested students and, if necessary, make further appointments after an initial meeting.

The new mourning group will meet from 7 p.m. in the premises of the ESG (Niceallee 20). Registration takes place via the Evangelical or Catholic university pastoral care (pastor Swantje Eibach-Danzeglocke, ESG, or pastor Matthias Fritz, KHG,
