They are the good spirit of our St. Michael's Church: sacristan and sacristan. They take care of all practical matters and make sure that services can be celebrated in a dignified manner. They help to put on the vestments, lay out the books, prepare the altar, take care of the altar candles and provide incense, communion wine and hosts. They make sure that the heating, lighting and loudspeakers are working and take care of the cleaning of the church. In short, they are responsible for all organizational matters around and in the church. In addition, they are important contact persons and for the liturgical services as well as for the church visitors.

Virtual Tour

Welcome to a virtual tour through St. Michael's Church! We hope that you will enjoy this special way of exploring the premises. Maybe you will be so fascinated by our church that we can welcome you as a visitor in the real word as well!

Holy Cross Chapel

Holy Cross Chapel is considered the most sacred space of St. Michael's; among other precious relics it used to preserve a piece of wood from the True Cross. The entire room is centered around the veneration of the cross, an idea that the altarpiece by Hans von Aachen (1552–1615) conveys particularly well. The sculptures under the arch that confines the chancel represent Jesus as VIR DOLORUM, the Man of Sorrows, and his mother Mary as MATER DOLOROSA, the Sorrowful Mother. The wall niches contain sculptures of St. Catherine and St. Barbara.
