What is pastoral care in schools?
Service to people
Pastoral care in schools is a church offer for religious orientation and for a human togetherness in the living space of school.
Open for all
Pastoral care in schools is to be understood as an invitation, regardless of religious affiliation.
Confidential and free of charge
Pastoral care in schools aims to accompany people in their personal questions, worries and needs (also in individual conversations) - on a confidential, free basis.
My name is Martina Straub and I have been a Catholic religion teacher at the Stetten a.k.M. school centre since 2014.
In 2016/17/18 I completed a two-year training course to become a school chaplain and since September 2018 I have been officially commissioned by the Catholic Church to provide school chaplaincy, which also bears the costs for my pastoral work at the Stetten a.k.M. school centre.
Supporting children and their relatives and being there for them in difficult situations has always been a great need of mine.
