“Everything is going to be fine in the end.
If it's not fine it's not the end.”
― Oscar Wilde
I myself lived in the Jägerstätter-Heim and enjoyed it immensely. The team of the KHG helped to broaden my horizon and I found many new friends and a “home from home”.
I stayed in Linz and now have the great opportunity together with my team to make your time as a student an unforgettable one. In my opinion this time in your life should be a time to experiment, to try new things, discover new talents (never thought I would sing in the KHG-choir) and enhance your interests. It's also the best time to meet friends for life and celebrate.
As a university pastor, I am available for all students, regardless of their denomination. I see myself as a spiritual companion on the sometimes challenging path of their studies. I try to look at the whole human (student) beyond pressure to perform and external expectations. To take them serious and communicate with them at eye level. I have been a pastor of the KHG since September 2018 and have previously finished the Bakip in Steyr and theology studies in Linz.
Before that I was a consultant for the Catholic Youth Austria and teacher at the HTL. In my spare time I like to be with people and play music. Right now I am at one of the “branch offices” of the Catholic university community. My offices are the Pedagogical University of the Diocese Linz (PHDL) and the student home Salesianum. I also deal with the task of how to establish university pastoral care at other university locations. I look forward to visits and discussions.
"People are door openers into life - into pure life with everything that can belong to it..."
...I try to be or become such a person. Encounters are essential for me - encounters with people, spaces, culture(s) in different places; encounters that fascinate, amaze, irritate, shape and change the way of thinking and living.
Since September 2021 I am part of the team as a university chaplain and responsible for spiritual offerings and social events. My doors and ears are open, so stop by (almost) anytime, I'm looking forward to meeting you!

I was able to look after a blind sibling couple at a youth festival, where they made wonderful music with friends. When greeting the audience they said: “Dad always says life is colorful. Well, we have to believe him, because we can’t see ”.
I also believe in a colorful and diverse life - may it be through the encounter with others, through dealing with topics, through actions and through faith and spirituality. The KHG is therefore an ideal place. A place to live and implement this colorful life. The exchange, togetherness and also foresight is the key and should be encouraged.
I am therefore very pleased that I am part of the KHG and can get to know you. I manage our main office in our KHG-Centre M.23. I studied sociology at the JKU and have been in different occupational fields since then. I'm very interested in culture - in theater, in cinema and in art institutions. I do yoga, I like to go hiking and I learn playing the guitar. I always have time for conversations - especially when they are coupled with coffee and cake.
