PASTORAL SERVICE: SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE
In close collaboration with the nursing staff and within the framework of the human, spiritual and religious accompaniment of hospitalized patients, the Catholic pastoral team, mandated by the Church, is at your disposal and contributes to developing the spiritual dimension of health care. This accompaniment is provided to all those involved and at all levels, whether individual or collective.
The pastoral service also ensures the relay with the representatives of the other religions: Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox, Islamic, Jewish, Buddhist and secular philosophy.
- Accompanying patients and families who wish to do so through a meeting, a listening ear or an exchange of words, a presence, a shared prayer, a sacrament.
- Supporting the members of the nursing staff by listening to them or facing their questions. All the staff of the clinic are also invited to participate in the activities suggest/organised by the pastoral team.
- Sacramental and liturgical animation in our clinics.
- By filling in the support request form received on admission.
- By asking the nurses, doctors, at the reception or by phoning one of our numbers
