The second one in 2017 continued this matter and deepened it with concrete examples of Conversions in Switzerland. 2019 is dedicated to the topic of Modern Church Building in Switzerland.Organizationally, the Swiss Religious Heritage Day is affiliated to the Liturgical Competence Center at the Theological Faculty of the University of Bern. It is only financed with third-party funds by sponsors.
