Brief study ‚Pastoral care in tourism in the context of Austria’s tourism industry‘


For the Pastoral Care Working Group of the Protestant Church in Austria, Christian Baumgartner is preparing an overview designed to correlate the most important Austrian tourism centres with the most vital Protestant parishes, which by tourism standards are most capable of development. The options for a reorientation of pastoral care work in the context of tourism –with the emphasis on sustainable tourism – and the options for the church as provider of cultural values in the tourism region will be embodied in recommendations. In addition, the employment of new media will be critically assessed.
