The dankenfeld music association, which is organizing the district music festival this year, hosted the deanery seniors’ day for the old deanery of ebern on friday. The musical program of this meeting, which was opened by the dean of the deanery, bruno deublein, was correspondingly musical.
He was pleased with the rough number of participants from rauhenebrach to ebern. Under the annual theme of the catholic seniors forum in the deanery habberge "uber brucken – uberbrucken" the liturgy, which was led by deanery senior pastor joachim stapf and pastor i.R. Ewald thoma together designed. At the reading about zachaus, in whose house jesus stayed, pastor thoma showed in his speech how jesus built bridges to those who had lost all connections to society. Building bridges is also the task of christians in 2013 and each of them. After all, the pope is not called "pontifex" for nothing, so bridge builders. And especially pope franciscus is a good example for all christians in this respect. Building bridges, cultivating relationships, the deanery seniors’ meetings should also contribute to this, he asked.
After the service, there was a lot of conversation, but also a colorful program with the children from the kindertagesstatte sankt josef in kirchaich and the senior dance group oberaurach under the direction of petra klug. Franz rodelmeier provided the musical accompaniment at the church service.
Oberaurach’s mayor thomas sechser welcomed the seniors in the steigerwald as warmly as did the chairman of the dankenfeld music association, berthold graser. He emphasized that the music association is also a bridge builder, because generations make music together here. With coffee and cake, happy music and songs sung together the seniors enjoyed a sunny afternoon in dankenfeld.
