Perpetual adoration has been in its current form since the middle of the 18th century. Introduced by Prince-Bishop von Seinsheim at the end of the 18th century, an essential part of the ecclesiastical year in the Archdiocese of Bamberg. It almost developed into a more tourist attraction in Pottenstein or retains its deep religious character with many visitors in Obertrubach. In both cases, the procession of lights plays a formative role at the end. Almost overlooked, however, are the many parishes that celebrate this day in a less spectacular way: like the parish of St. Francis of Assisi. Stephanus Moggast on the Jura plateau in Franconian Switzerland.
Due to a shortage of priests, the parish is now served by Pastor Florian Stark from Pretzfeld. Days before the perpetual adoration 22 altar boys from the associated villages Morschreuth, Burggaillenreuth and Windischgaillenreuth found themselves in the outbuilding of the property of church caretaker Friedrich Wolfel. Over the year they had collected candle remnants to melt down. Then the "Minis" carved still the necessary wood shavings to prepare in tins the light decoration for the final procession for the decoration. The parish council chairman and sacristan Ulrich Angermeier and numerous employees of his committee supported them in the process.
First Communion children
At the end of the Perpetual Adoration, Father Florian Stark celebrated the final service concelebrating with Father Vijaya Raja Boddu. In his homily, pastoral advisor Andreas Lowenfelder spoke about the multiplication of the loaves and took the opportunity to introduce the First Communion children for 2018.
