Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Freiburg
The Archdiocese of Freiburg im Breisgau (Latin Archidioecesis Friburgensis) is a Roman Catholic diocese in Baden-Württemberg comprising the former states of Baden and Hohenzollern. The Archdiocese of Freiburg is led by an archbishop, Robert Zollitsch, who also serves as the metropolitan bishop of the Upper-Rhine ecclesiastical province for the suffragan dioceses of Mainz and Rottenburg-Stuttgart. Its seat is Freiburg im Breisgau.
In 1821 the Archdiocese of Freiburg was founded out of the Diocese of Constance as well as parts of the Mainz, Straßburg, Worms and Würzburg dioceses. Freiburg pastor Bernhard Boll became the first bishop in 1827. Well known successors were Conrad Gröber and Hermann Schäufele.
Today, church closures are not seen in the archdiocese of Freiburg. The same goes for the consolidation of parishes. The Archdiocese of Freiburg exercises the concept of “unions of pastoral guidance”.
On November 1, 2005 the archbishop Dr. Robert Zollitsch enacted “Pastoral Guidelines” for the first time in the history of the Archdiocese. These guidelines are given the title “Shaping the awakening”.
