Collegiate Church

For current events, it is pointed out that mouth-nose protection must be worn during church services and that a minimum distance of two meters must be observed.


Wednesday and Sunday at 7 p.m. on 8 p.m. 24 .; May 27th and 31st an old tradition is revived in the Kollegienkirche.

This year's theme revolves around the “wedding to Cana” (John 2.1-12).
The following spoke: Helga Rabl-Stadler, President of the Salzburg Festival, Prof. Elisabeth Gutjahr, Rector of the Mozarteum University; the head of the cultural department of the Salzburger Nachrichten Ms. Hedwig Kainberger and the vice dean of Theol. Faculty Ms. Prof. Angelika Walser.

The roots of the May devotions go back to a Marian custom, which is determined by piety, cross worship and requests for good weather. Sources of this time speak of “setting a spiritual May” at the beginning of May, that is to say to focus specifically on spiritual focal points. May devotions for the veneration of Mary developed as a baroque popular piety around 400 years ago. But it wasn't until the 19th century that they spread from Italy to the parishes.
