We are dependent on donations, especially after two difficult Corona years.
St. Michael's is a church owned by the state and belongs under church law as a side church to the cathedral. The church foundation St. Michael is independent and subordinate to the ordinariate. The Free State of Bavaria is responsible for investments that affect the building fabric. The archdiocese finances the salaries of the full-time staff.
The diocesan subsidy does not even cover half of our expenses. The maintenance of the rooms, the fees incurred, the administrative and energy costs, the liturgical needs and above all the honorary staff in the area of music (soloists, orchestra musicians) must be covered from the income of the church foundation. St. Michael's must "bring in" over half a million euros annually. This is done through Sunday collections, the income from the offering candles and, above all, through voluntary donations.
Support is possible in the following ways in particular:
As a one-time donation:
We are, especially in Corona times, dependent on donations. You are welcome to transfer money to the St. Michael's account under the keyword "Kollekte" (collection), especially since the income from the bell bag has decreased considerably. If you would like to donate specifically for the music, please feel free to use the keyword "Michaelsmusik" We thank you for all your willingness to support us.
