Friends of Lassalle-Haus - the Patrons Association

The Patrons Association is an important partner of the Lassalle-Haus. Membership in the Association helps Lassalle-Haus to continue to provide our service to the community through supporting the upkeep of the house and further developing our educational work. The Patrons Association is a critical member of the Lassalle-Haus family that is committed to the goals of the Centre and to the paths to living a spiritual life.

“If you are looking for a place to learn and grow, or simply want some time out of the hectic pace of everyday life, Lassalle House offers a place of tranquility for spiritual exercises or meditation.”

Karen Curjel, Director of RE / Pastoral Coordinator, Good Shepherds Zug


Patrons grow with us and experience first-hand the latest developments of the house.

In addition, your membership provides the opportunity to deepen your own spirituality. Twice annually, Lassalle-Haus presents the Patron Salon, an event with dinner and a discussion on cultural and psychological, political and ethical issues of the time. Also, each year we invite members of the association to the Patrons Festival, where well-known personalities meet patrons and answer their questions. In earlier years, these were Hans Küng, Verena Kast, Leonardo Boff, Irene Meier, Peter von Matt and Arnold Hottinger.

The annual membership fee for the Patrons Association is CHF 200 per year, which allows you to benefit from topical discussions and join like-minded people in the circle of the association.

Companies, institutions, foundations can also subscribe to an annual corporate membership for CHF 1000. The Patron Salons and the Patrons Festival are open to their corporate members and employees.

Patrons Festival

In 1999 the Lassalle-Haus founded the "Verein der Gönner Lassalle-Haus Bad Schönbrunn" in order to support the Centre and its educational work. The club members are each invited to the Festival in early summer and experience first-hand the latest developments of the house. At this festival, well-known personalities speak about cultural and psychological, political and ethical issues of the time. In recent years, these keynote speakers have included Hans Küng, Leonardo Boff, Verena Kast, Arnold Hottinger, Peter von Matt. The next Patrons Festival takes place on 15 June 2019.

Patrons Salon

The twice yearly Patrons Salon event provides members with a special guest, a discussion on a current topical issue, a dinner, and above all, great company. In a relaxed atmosphere, get to know the guest and his reflections on cultural and psychological, political and ethical issues of the time.
