The house of saint bruno introduces itself

For four years, the sankt bruno house in habfurt was a construction site. Since august also the pit facilities are finished and in the next week the inauguration will follow. On saturday, 21. September, the house presents itself at an open day from 10 to 16 o’clock with its new concept "caritas and church under one roof" to the general public.

St. Bruno was previously purely a retirement home – with open events and church services, but specialized exclusively in caring for the elderly. Their living situation was changed during the renovation, as was the concept of the entire building complex. The building is now also home to various counseling centers and the social services department.

The inpatient residential groups are open to 81 residents. The social station with addiction counseling and social psychiatric service as well as outpatient assisted living is in line with this, so that in future 150 employees of the caritas association habberge will have their "support point" in the house of saint bruno have. Another 20 people work in the counseling centers and church facilities that also have their rooms here – for example, the malteser hospice service, the counseling center of the social service of catholic women, the pastoral care of the KAB, the marriage, family and life counseling, the pastoral care of families in the deanery of habberge or the parish letter service.

The organ rehearsal room for church music in the habberge has long been located on the upper floor of sankt bruno, and the dean and deanery advisor also have their offices here.

Saint bruno belongs to the caritasverband der diozese wurzburg and is sponsored by the caritasverband fur den landkreis habberge.

13 million euros total cost

6700 square meters of net floor space were rebuilt in three construction phases. The total cost was estimated at around 13 million euros. The financing was carried out without any public or other funds. 5.5 million euros contributed by the wurzburg diocese as a grant.

The special challenge of the conversion was to implement it while the facility was in operation. The cramped location in the old town was also a challenge for the companies. After each construction stage it was necessary to move. The employees were particularly challenged during construction. Naturally, there was also construction site alarm, but quite a few residents had also followed the construction work with interest and regarded it as a change of pace, report the nursing staff.

At the open day on saturday, 21. September, there is a colorful program throughout the house, with which the various institutions want to inform about their work.
