Spiritual Life at FIT

JUST A MOMENT: Invitation to devotions & more

FIT Chapel enlighted

During the lecture period, spiritual life and biblical meditation are fundamental components of FIT's living and learning community. Several times a week we pause for a moment and reflect on what we hope for in life and death. All students, faculty and staff members as well as friends of FIT are very much welcome to attend the devotions and other spiritual formats. 


The various forms of pausing and reflecting on God and our faith take place in Summer Semester 2024 as follows:

  • Tuesdays at 9.45 am:        Devotion in German
                     at 4.00 pm:        Sing along Devotion 
                                               ("sing along/share a song")
  • Wednesdays at 6.15 pm:   Devotion in English

A German-language service is held on Sundays at 10.00 a.m. in the St. Peter-Paul Church; an English translation is available on request. 

Please also note the current information, which will be sent to you weekly by email during the semester.

The devotions are usually based on a liturgy in the Evangelical Lutheran tradition, but may be enriched by elements from other traditions. Students and faculty work together in preparing and leading the different types of spiritual life. Your suggestions, comments and new ideas are very welcome. Please contact Prof. Dr. Johannes Weth for more information.

Rooms for prayer and meditation on our campus are also available to you upon request.
