Special Announcement:
Update January 21, 2021: Wearing of FFP2/N95 masks on Sunday is mandatory. One should always wear one’s mask even while sitting. Children up to their 6th birthday are exempt from the obligation to wear masks (§ 1 para. 2 p. 1 11th BayIfSMV). Between the 6th and 15th birthday, mouth-nose covering is sufficient, the FFP2 mask obligation therefore only applies after the 15th birthday (§ 1 para. 2 p. 2 11th BayIfSMV). Those persons who do not abide by this rule will not be permitted to participate in the church service.
 
FFP2/N95 masks protect the wearer even better than regular surgical masks. From December 15th onwards, every person over 60 years of age can obtain three FFP2 masks free of charge at his or her pharmacy upon presentation of his or her identity card or passport. You can also buy FFP2 masks in your pharmacy or purchase them online, for example here: We want to guarantee that our mass is as safe as possible. This includes keeping your distance and wearing masks even after the end of the mass.
 
Fee per service at St. Ludwig Parish Church. As has been mentioned, we are paying a fee for the use of this church. The fee is €100.00 per service. Every Sunday there is a donation basket on a table at the back of the church. Please support this community expense with your donations.
 
No public toilet at St. Ludwig Parish Church. There is no public toilet at St. Ludwig Parish Church which is open to visiting congregation members. The toilet near the sacristy is only for celebrants and sacristans.
