The Grail Administration
Fields of activity of the Grail Administration
The Grail Administration Vomperberg belongs to the Bernhardt property. The staff, working in all areas, are employed by the Bernhardt company. In addition to the management of the Grail Settlement, including the residences and guest houses, the Grail Administration is also responsible for the organisational order of events of the Hours of Worship and Grail Festivals.
The Grail Festivals, which take place thrice a year on the Grail Settlement, are mostly attended by foreign participants. This entails considerable organisational effort in terms of reservation of accommodation, which is handled by the employees of the Grail Administration.
The Grail Administration is also active for the Hours of Worship and Grail Festivals that take place outside the Grail Settlement. A close cooperation between the Grail Administration and the institutions of Gralswerk or the Grail Movement in the different countries forms a helpful basis for the preparation of such Hours of Worship and Grail Festivals.
The Grail Administration Vomperberg keeps a record of those people who participate in Hours of Worship and Grail Festivals. Prerequisite for the participation is the request by the individual reader and person who professes the Grail Message to be admitted to Hours of Worship and Grail Festivals. A mentoring of readers and those who profess the Grail Message does not take place by the Grail Administration. However, the Grail Administration is prepared – to the limits of its capabilities – to give help and guidance through discussions and letters.
The Grail Administration is financed by the income of the Bernhardt company, by cost contributions collected for events as well as by donations which flow to it from individuals and organisations for the support of its activity.
Another field of activity arises in connection with the conduct of funerals for readers and those who profess the Grail Message. Since these people commonly wish to have a funeral in the sense of the Grail Message, the necessity arose to appoint officiants of the Grail Administration Vomperberg in various countries to carry out such Grail Funerals. The inhabitants of the Grail Settlement find their last resting place in a small private forest cemetery.
The activity of the Grail Administration Vomperberg extends to many countries of this earth, with the help, coordination or administration always taking place only at the request of the people living there.
