A further form of hospitality which we offer is our hostel in the Martinsscheune. Between 1990-1997 a barn on the edge of our property was renovated with the purpose of offering people in need or without a home a place to stay in a non-bureucratic way. Guests can come with their specific needs and stay in the Martinsscheune for a limited amount of time. It is not necessary for them to have an interest in Christianity or the community.
Guests look after themselves. We offer help towards self-help and arrange for professional services when necessary. People who live without a permanent residence and who wish to continue to live in this way are as welcome as those who want to change their living situation. We are led by the words of Christ: "I was a stranger and you took me in", and the word of St. Benedict: "Great care and concern are to be shown in receiving poor people and pilgrims".
The hostel is financed only in part by subsidies. We are dependent on donations.
