up to now, this great Feast for the faithful and the show was funny only because of bad weather. This year, the well-known Seeprozession must be in Seehausen due to Corona.
Seehausen – The island of Wörth heard on Thursday the cows. The suckler cow herd of the White family lives and feed there. They will also graze on the feast of corpus Christi. The boat rental is open. If the weather cooperates, anyone can explore with the Boat to the lake. Basically, everything is as always in Seehausen. Just that this Thursday is nothing like always.
The village celebrates the feast of corpus Christi usually on the lake and on the island. For Germany, it is widely known. News agencies and television stations send out their camera men to the image of the ships covered lake to capture. So far, only the bad weather had the power to transform this one-time worship service in a the ordinary. Now, the Coronavirus has a similar, only even greater effect. Seehausen is celebrating the Feast on Thursday in the parish Church. With 25 Believers.
2013 procession in Seehausen the last Time
a year Ago, Angelika Guglhör, President of the parish Council told us of the seven fat years, the Egyptian experience in the book of Moses. Six fat years, in a figurative sense, enjoyed the Seehauser. With the sun, and many guests. Beautiful Holidays. In 2013, the procession had to be cancelled. Due To The Rain. Hopefully no lean years follow Guglhör said last year. In The Fun. "I see 2020 as a lean year, but as a special," she says now. Rain and storms have been more frequent the sea-travel is prevented, sometimes even a few years in a row. An epidemic never. "All of it is difficult," says Guglhör. But mei, so it be now. "Our duty is that the people don't stay healthy, a casserole with a few hundred people you need."
parish councillor has already experienced one of the strictly regulated worship services. 25 people in a large Church like some strange. Guglhör says: "It's different." The believers reported previously. You avoided this scramble for places. Not allowed to sing it these days. The Seehauser Franz Raith have, the organist. "The plays are so nice, because you do not need to sing at all." The mass on Thursday is similar: 25 people indoors, outdoor speakers, for more outside, a disinfectant dispenser at the entrance, no singing, Raith on the organ. To the high strength of the jewelry – Church flags and birch trees reminiscent, as required by the Tradition. The concept has developed Guglhör with a municipality officer Mona Schmid and representation-pastor Peter Seidel from Habach, even when celebrating mass in his Church. Help comes from Benediktbeuern, by the priests in the monastery. "They are all so understanding," says Guglhör.
Much sadder from the cancelled Seeprozession: farewell to pastor Walter still not possible
it has also invited Thomas Renftle, the new priest. Next week, he would like to come by and with the responsible people talk about the future. 1. In September he will assume the vacant office after the death of Robert Walter. Here Guglhör sees the real Problem in the difficult corona time: That the municipality was no Chance to say goodbye worthy of pastor Walter. A cancelled Maritime procession go in order. "Our Church is after all not just from the corpus Christi procession."
