"The ideas are bubbling up again," says Andrea Schirnjack's successor.

Erding

– Since September, the School Pastoral Center (SPZ) Erding has had a director again.

The position was vacant for a year because Andrea Schirnjack took over the senior pastoral care.

Now the division of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising is occupied again.

Schirnjack's successor is theologian Franziska Marschall, who previously worked as a pastoral officer in the parish association of Maria Tading.

The 64-year-old from Erding is full of motivation and at the same time wants to prepare the SPC for an upheaval that is due to the limited pastoral staff.

The Erding School Pastoral Center was founded around 15 years ago.

For 13 years it was established and managed by Schirnjack.

After their career change, the most important administrative activities were coordinated from Munich, but there were no special offers for schools at that time.

This has now changed again with the occupation of Marschall.

After completing her training as a chemical-technical assistant, the 64-year-old completed a degree in theology.

Immediately afterwards their first son was born.

Three more children followed, and Marschall finally took 15 years to care for the family before she started in the pastoral ministry in Langengeisling.

The theologian later worked for eight years in the Aufkirchen parish association and headed the faith mediation department in the ordinariate for seven years before she came to the Maria Tading parish association in 2020.

There the Erdingerin, who is married to lung specialist Markus Marschall, was responsible for the communities of Buch am Buchrain and Hohenlinden.

Through the process of adapting the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising to the 2030 position plan, Marschall became aware that there was a shortage of personnel for several activities in Erding.

The Erdingerin received the promise for the SPZ, which also meant the quick farewell to Maria Tading.

"It hurt me to leave there," Marshal admits.

She really enjoyed meeting people from the parishes.

According to Marschall, the start at the SPZ went well, but because of the quiet summer time it was also "quite unspectacular".

Your first activities: slowly ramping up the event portfolio.

The target group of the SPZ are all schools in the deanery of Erding and Dorfen.

Marschall himself has never counted how many there are.

"But I want to visit all of them one after the other."

Regardless of faith, the SPZ takes care of spiritual offerings in schools, such as church services or orientation mornings.

"The social aspect is a key point of our work."

Offers of the SPZ are also aimed specifically at teachers.

On February 15th there will be an organized tour for them in the Freising Diocesan Museum.

In addition, a digital course for contemplative meditation will take place once a month until March.

All dates are published at www.schulpastorales-zentrum-erding.de.

Meditative walks with candles through the park are to be offered again for schools in 2023.

Another idea of ​​Marshal's is still in development.

The head of the SPZ is currently speaking to secondary schools to find out whether their students would like to deal with the subject of "Hope is stronger than death" in an artistic, creative or literary way.

A vernissage with the results would also be possible.

Another task of the 64-year-old is to prepare the Erdinger SPZ for an upheaval.

Due to the lack of personnel in pastoral care, the following SPZ management will, according to the current status, only be filled with half a position.

It is then also questionable which offers of the SPZ can still exist in the future or where the focus should be.

For this reason as well, Marshal attaches great importance to her supporting team.

Some workers work on a fee or flat rate for volunteer work.

The SPC boss wants to find even more cooperation partners in schools.

"It's not possible for me to always be present at every school." It was precisely this conceptual work with regard to the future of the SPZ that really appealed to Marschall.

The girl from Erding enjoyed her previous work in the parish association, but in the SPZ “I am challenged even more to develop something new.

I have a lot more design options, but I'm still close to the parish," explains Marschall and adds happily: "The ideas are bubbling up again.

I hope I can still make a difference here.”
