The Catholic University Center QuellPunkt is opening on Campus Melaten with an Open House Day on Tuesday, January 23 between the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Located in the building of the Production Engineering Cluster, QuellPunkt is a place that strives to be (and can be) many things: a place of rest, discourse, spirituality and reflection. A space for dialogue, prayer, networking and discoveries. An idea that is dedicated entirely to the people on the campus – students, professors, experts from science and industry as well as visitors.

The Open House Day on January 23 will be an opportunity to become acquainted with QuellPunkt Catholic University Center: people, spaces, ideas and opportunities. The Room of Silence  (Raum der Stille) offers a unique spatial experience for Campus Melaten. Klaus Simon, who artistically designed the Room of Silence , will also be in attendance. In the foyer, coffee breaks feature a variety of coffee specialties for visitor enjoyment. In conversation with each other and pastoral worker Dieter Praas, the head of the University Center, attendees can exchange and develop ideas for QuellPunkt.

With the Catholic University Center on Campus Melaten, the Diocese of Aachen contributes its expertise regarding questions in research ethics, the idea of man and social responsibility. The Room of Silence recalls the question of transcendence within the research landscape on the campus. QuellPunkt will cover a wide range of formats and topics in the context of meetings, discussions and talks, spiritual offers and exhibitions. A key component here is the cooperation with partners, especially from the university and church communities.

Pastoral worker   Dieter Praas is responsible for the QuellPunkt program and is available as a partner for dialogue and discussions. After Carnival, the QuellPunkt will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The preliminary opening hours until Carnival and more information can be found on the website at www.quellpunkt.de.
