191 years since the day Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos was born in Füssen and Baptised in St Mang Basilica.

ANOTHER MASS LESS IN THE PARISH(10 Jan 2010)
From 1st January 2010 the 1800hrs Mass on Tuesdays in the Oest Algäu Hospital Chapel has been discontinued.Already the Parish has lost the Thursday Mass in the Spitalkirche which is now only celebrated once a month.Also the Sunday Mass times had to be changed in 2009.So its even more important to check Mass Times before coming on a visit to Füssen.
The Vicar General of Augsburg Diocese,Prelate Karlheinz Knebel made it very clear in an interview this week with the Diocesan Newspaper,that the celebration of  SUNDAY MASS in ALL PARISHES OF THE DIOCESE IS HIS NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.Due to declining number of Priests and re-organisation of the pastoral care of souls,he sees as top priority enabling all Catholics to attend a Sunday Mass.Prelate Knebel said "Nothing can replace the Holy Mass on Sundays for a Catholic.".The future will see less money coming the church tax which is levied on all workers who profess a religious faith in Germany.The Vicar General sees no problem with less money due to prudent use by the Diocese in the past.Much administration work will have to be centralised in future to cut down on costs.The Vicar General makes it very clear he is running a Diocese in the service of God,not a business.He doesn't see shutting down Parishes with old traditions and identities and amalgamating others as the answer.This has been done in many English speaking Dioceses and often has led to hurt and friction within the local church itself.He made clear his great trust in God and pointed out that many times in the past has the church gone through difficult times.The one thing that shines through in his interview is that CHRIST IS THE MASTER OF THE CHURCH AND THAT HE HAS THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT ALWAYS ASSISTS THE CHURCH AT ALL TIMES.
