In close collaboration with the healthcare staff and for the purposes of the global care provided to hospitalised patients, the Catholic pastoral team is at your disposal and provides human, spiritual and religious support. It also serves as a bridge with the representatives of other denominations (Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox, Islamic, Israelite), Buddhist philosophy, as well as with secularism.
What is our mission?
- Providing support to patients and families who desire it, through meetings, listening, discussions, a supporting presence, a shared prayer or a sacrament.
- Organising liturgical and sacramental activities within the clinics.
- Supporting members of the healthcare staff by listening to their doubts, paying attention to their experiences and exchanging thoughts about their questions. The entire staff of the Europe Hospitals is also invited to take part in the activities organised by the pastoral team.
